    Complicated wiring question, need some advice

    Hey everyone. I have an idea that I want to bring to life, but not quite sure if it will work or not, so I need some of you electrical wiring wizards to help me out. Ok... heres my situation

    I made my own little bass-blockers for my front speakers in my truck with 2 10uF capacitors. It's supposed to cut off the frequencies below 2K hz. It works VERY good, especially for only $.99 a piece at Radio Shack, but they tend to send the highs a little TOO loud. Anyway... I want to rig up a switch to turn my amp on and off (bastard police ) Now my problem is.. I also want to be able to like disconnect those capacitors from the front speakers at the same time, so I can just use the regular speakers to play a little bass while my subs are out.

    It really isn't all that important or neccessary, but its summer, no school and nothing to do. I got the idea and I want to make it work. If anyone can tell me how I would go about doing this or if it's even possible, please get to me ASAP and tell me about it!

    You'd need a 3-pole switch, which is a real oddball. 4PDT switches are available, but not real common.

    A simpler solution is use a double-pole switch to short out the capacitors, and a separate switch to interrupt the remote signal from the amp.

    If you insist on having only 1 switch, you could do it this way...

    A double pole switch - one circuit runs a DPDT relay, the other circuit switches your remote. The relay contacts would short out the caps. Or, use a SPST switch and a 4PDT relay...

    You get the idea. You need 3 switch circuits total.
