2 amps, one remote wire???

Recommended Posts

Is it OK, and more importantly safe for me to be running 2 amps off of one remote turn on wire? I will just run the one wire to the back, and then split it into 2 wires, one for each amp. So is it OK that I do this, or should I try something else.

I'm not running anything excessive, I have a Alpine CDE-HD137BT HU, a Alpine MRP-M500 Sub amp, and a Sony XM-4045 Mids and Highs amp. I may run it temporary for a few months until I can afford some other upgrade I know I will want like a volt meter, dampening, and now a relay.

I believe the remote input on most amps requires such a small amount of juice that it's possible to run some like 10 amplifiers off one remote wire?

just jump from one amp to the other. there's no need to even entertain the idea of a relay with just 2 amps.

Tony hooked me up with the deluxe kit.... i really dig it....

There you go. I was just looking for this thread.

Edit: as stated above one of these really is overkill for 2 amps but FYI one of these relays will turn on 5 to 6 dozen amplifiers.
