    Either split your remote wire with connectors so that you have a remote lead for each amp or daisy chain the remote from one amp to the other.

    If I run the remote wire from my jbl (4 chan) to my pa (momo amp) you think that will **** up the amp.

    I guess I can run a relay if that doesn't **** up with the amps..

    its when you race..... but you have more then one racer.... a baton and you hand it off n such.... more exciting races that way....


    It is also a electrical device... kind of like an automatic switch in a crude sort of way... In this case it would draw power from another source other thenthe head unit to give the signal....

    LOL! For just 2 amps, just jump the remote wire from the first amp to the second.

    Anymore amps then that, use a relay....

    What's a relay? it's a race... LOL!
