    relays and fans and such

    i'm looking to add two fans and a couple of neons to my amp rack. my question is this- how do i go about splitting power to them all. i know to run a relay but would i then use a small distro block to divide up the power? if so-where the heck would i find a block that small (12-16ga.)? also would it be safe to pun the power wite to the relay from another distro block. (i've got a three way with only two in use) if i'm not close please resterr me (DIAGRAMS WOULD BE EXTREMELY HELPFYL!)

    The stuff you want to run doesn't take more than a couple amperes all combined. I'd just tap into the wire to your amp or existing distro block and use an inline fuse. Feed that to your relay, then split off from the output side of the relay to your stuff. You should be able to get away with a 2-3 amp fuse.
