    More than 3 amps

    Rule of thumb for remote turn on is 3 amps correct? What do I need to turn the 4th on?

    Re: More than 3 amps

    What are you talking about?

    All amps can be turned on by the same remote wire.

    Re: More than 3 amps

    I would think so, all that thing does it lets the amp "see" 12-14 volts which switches it on...you can parallel 100 wires and they will all show 12 volts across them

    Re: More than 3 amps

    nooo you cannot just keep daisyin amps. the remote out does have a limit. different decks different values. each amp has a diff draw for the remote turn on too. contact company find out wat the deck can handle then find out wat the amps pull. anything more then 3 i use a relay.

    Re: More than 3 amps

    I'd use a relay for anything more than 2 to be on the safe side. You wouldn't want to fry the internal relay on your HU.

    Re: More than 3 amps

    You should use a relay on a fused 5 amp lead. It may sound like a lot of work but it's not that hard. its worth not damaging the remote turn on circuit in the head unit.

    Re: More than 3 amps

    correct. just make sure u use the right diagram. i use to have that book. lost it . what your doing is using the remote wire to kick the relay over to where your using 12v from battery to turn on the amps/processor. think big switch.

    That's the reason why people shy away from this site. First people to usually answer are 90% of the time wrong. As in this case, people spouting about something they know nothing about as gospel. Could have wrecked his deck if others in the know, didn't come to the rescue.
