    Yes. Run the remote to one terminal on the switch, and out to the amp on the other terminal.

    Just add an inline switch on the remote turn on lead.

    i have a switch on my power wire. so when i flip the switch the amp gets power and then the blue wire(turn on) runs from the power terminal on the amp to the turn on terminal on the amp.

    it works for me but the switch on the turn on lead works i think

    I suppose you could also put a relay on the speakers wire. But you might get some switching noises when you flip your switch. The remote wire is probably the best way. But if you want to bypass the turn on/off delay that might be built into the amp then the relay will work. I haven't tried it yet, but was going to play with it pretty soon.

    You have to use a switch that's rated for the amount of power your remote turn on puts out. On my pioneer 6400, the remote is about 4 amperes, so I got a 4 amp switch from radio shack (mine was only about $2).....never had a single problem with it.

    Your remote wire is 4 amps? Every deck I have ever seen is rated in the miliamps. You don't need much power to turn on a couple of accessories. And it's fairly simple to relay it if you need more. But then Alpine does get crazy sometimes.
