Power connector in trunk - purpose,fuse

I found a power connector in my trunk (93 Impreza L) that seems to serve no purpose. It's run parallel to the wiring for the brake light in my rear windshield - maybe for trailer brake lights? Don't have a trailer or a rear wiper, and I thought about using the power for my subs. I'm borrowing a voltmeter from a friend, and I expect it to be 12V. If it is, I'll likely need to swap in a new fuse to allow enough power. I haven't been able to find anything useful in my repair guide about this power cable or which fuse controls it, and I'd prefer not to trace everything from the trunk to the dash. Does anyone know where I could find more info? Could I do any damage by throwing a larger fuse in there?

Keep the peace.
