    Can I turn my amp on and off with the remote lead?

    Hello people

    I've recentley purchased an Ipod which I thought I'd use as a replacement for my car stereo. I can connect my Ipod to my amp which is connected to all my speakers but I don't know how to manipulate the remote lead so that I can switch the amp on and off as required. Is there any way of connecting the remote lead to a switch to turn it on and off somehow?

    Any help on this matter will be greatly appreciated , thank you.

    Yeah, get a switch and fuse and wire it up directly to 12v and use the switch to turn on/off the amp. Or instead of connecting direct to the 12v hook it up to ignition that way whenever you turn the car on/off the amp does the same.

    the switch thing is ghetto and a p.i.t.a.

    you should hook up the remote lead like you would any other way in any other car audio set-up....to the ignition

    Maybe try the TR-4 . . .

    trigger module. It uses a low volt input(tap into the line out from the ipod) to control a 12v output (wire to your amp remote turn-on) http://www.pac-audio.com/products/pr...gger%20Modules


    If you have a CarPC installed you can use the TR-4 module and the comm port DTR line to turn on your amps,like this. Simple and safe. Windows Service that raises DTR on powerup

    If your in the US this should be less that $20.00 shipped.

    Hope this helped.
