LED's don't use a lot of power at all. can't say how much current they will pull exactly though.

why do you need to know??

most computer fans are usually 12V, so its no problem. one wire will be positive, one will be negitive. if you reverse the wires, the fan will just spin backwards. cut the plug off, strip the ends and connect just like you would anything else in a car.

Connect them to a control curcuit that only comes on when your key is turned. Wire em separately from the amps. If you must use the rem, run it through a relay.

www.bcae1.com has a section on adding fans and other accessories to the amp wireing.

Alright i think i understand now. the red circles would be all grounds correct? so the 2 wires on the fan will be 1 to the relay and 1 is ground?

Bosch is the most common maker of relay, yes. I'm sure if you looked hard enough you could find others.. (I.E. like Stingers 200 amp relays and such.)
