    How many remote wires before you need a relay?

    Just wondering how many remote wires you can run from a single head units remote wire. And I take it once you have to many you just run the initial remote wire to a relay, then run more remote wires from there.



    HU: Pioneer AVH-P8400bh
    Amps: JL XD 400.4 / JBL 1201.1
    Front stage: HAT Imagine I61-2V2 6.5''
    Sub: JL 12w7, IB in the works.

    Re: How many remote wires before you need a relay?

    Heard the same thing one time...



    "When I listen to a stereo loudspeaker playback in my room and an auditory scene has formed in my mind, how would I know that what I hear is an accurate replica of an auditory scene that could be had at the recording venue? Or more generally, that this is an auditory scene that could have existed at all?"

    It depends on the output current of the head unit and the current draw of the amp(s). But I wouldn't run more than two amps without a relay because a failure in an amp can cause serious damage to your head unit.

    What relay would you suggest.
