    Always keep your RCA's away from any kind of power cord. It just saves you from later headaches.

    Yes or you could just jumper the 12 volts plugged into the amp to the remote with a small piece of wire, same difference.

    Are you talking about running a small 16-18 guage wire from the power input on the amp to the remote input.Cause' that was brought up on a different thread and i wanted to know if it actually works.

    yes it works but your amp will be on all the time, leading to a dead battery

    You can run your remote wire with the RCA cables and not have any problems at all, I've been doing this for years and years without any ill effects....the remote wire is carrying milliamps; interferences is not going to be an issue.

    remote wire

    The remote wire won't cause interference run next to the rca's.

    If that does happen just get a ground loop isolator.

    Whether you'll get interference depends on your RCA's IMO. I have 2 amps, running off of a 4-guage wire (distributed to 2 8 guage wires). The RCAs for my sub amp are run along the same side as the power wire. These were expensive RCA's, and the insulation on these are very thick. Now.. i have two pairs of RCA's running along the other side of my car. If I put anything near them that has any current running though it, my speakers produce a high-pitched noise These RCA's are quite thin compared to my sub amp's RCAs
