    Icon14 my switch

    i have my amp on a toggle switch. if the power source to the toggle switch is a good connection to the fuse will it stop my amp from putting out alot of watts. it still worked but i checked the connection and made it better and it sounded like it harder

    Just make sure that the switch can handle the power that you are running and it should be/sound fine. All to often do I hear people fring a switch

    why do you have all that current going throught a toggel switch, thats not good

    do i understand you to mean that you have the power connection going to the battery via a switch?? thats not good because every 240 watts draws 20 amps of current, and most switches can handle 10amps at the most, you might start a fire, its better if you connect the remote wire via a switch because the remote wire is around 0.5 amps, it always stays the same and you can use a tiny micro switch for that.

    no not the power wire for my amp. the system control wire off the amp is going to the switch and the power for the switch is from my fuse box and the switch is grounded to metal on my car
