    Maybe Radio Shack too.

    Before going nuts with using a relay, check the specs on your amps' remote requirements. I think the remote input on my RF amp is only 1 ma. (.001 amp). The head unit could power 300 of them. Relay coils take current too, some 12V relays require 50-100 milliamps coil current. That would be 50-100 times MORE load than the remote.

    Also it's a good idea to put a reverse diode across any relay coil to prevent the inductive spike from damaging the driver transistor in the head unit. Some automotive relays have the diode built in.
