    kill switch for subs

    have kill switch installed. its an illuminated switch. i have the switch hooked up to my remote wire for amp so can turn amp off so it doesnt use up all my car battery. the switch has 3 connectors power, acc, and ground. right now i have the remote wire split. stereo end hooked to power and amp end hooked to ground. but the switch doesnt light up. anybody know how i can wire it so the switch lights up.

    hook up a constant 12v source to the power you remote wire to the acc and run a wire from the ground to where you head unit is grounded or the ground wire on your hu harness

    bryan, no.... ditch the switch and use the remote wire from the back of the head unit, unless you dont have an aftermarket HU. If you dont have an aftermarket HU, find the wiring diagram for an illuminated switch and wire it as directed

    ok, so just hook up the remote wire on the back of the hu to the amp, there is really no need for the switch, but if you do want one, just put the remote wire from your hu to the power on the switch then go from the acc on the switch to the amp, you shouldnt need a ground and this will eliminate the problem of you forgetting and leaving the amps on all the time

    Re: kill switch for subs

    Run a wire from the remote turn on from the back of the hu (blue usally) to the remote terminal on the amps. The amps will turn on/off with the hu. No need for a switch

    Re: kill switch for subs

    Well here is the deal. Run the switch between the remote turn on on the hu and the amps. That way the amps will always be off when the car is off.
