    Can my head unit remote-turn-on wire service both power amp and power antenna?

    When I installed my Kenwood 352U head unit the other day, I connect it's "ant cont" wire to the antenna wire on the wiring harness I got for my car (1999 subaru outback). This lead to ---> no power to antenna. So I connected the amp remote turn on to the power antenna, and it works just fine now.

    But now I wanna put an amp in my system, and it'll need a turn-on lead too! Is it okay to put a t-splice connector on there and run the single output from my head unit to both antenna and power amp? Or is that gonna be too much for it?

    Thanks!
