Really depends on where the alternator is wired to. If using the factory setup, the horn relay is the best place since is is the closest place to where the alternator output is, if the alternator is wired to the battery, then this would be the best place. The idea is, where ever one plans on connecting all the add on accessries, you want to be as close as possible to the alternator output.

Good point, fusible links don't do much good if they are bunched up with other wires to short out against.
