  • Wiring ignition line

    So I was thinking about this last night because this project has totally emcompassed my conscious and unconscious thought patterns continuously, I have 2 devices that need to use the ignition wire to determine when to start.

    I have an amp in the trunk that needs a delay to start after the ignition line goes high.

    I also have an M2 that needs to start, but without the delay.

    What type of wiring and/or relays and devices would I need to power such a situation?

    What should I use to split the ignition line to drive those two devices?

    Thanks for your help!

    M2-atx?

    or what m2 are you talking about?

    if you're not talking about the m2 power supply, you should look into getting either it or a power supply that has the amp turnon delay built in (which the M2 does)

      I am talking about the M2-ATX power supply

        ok - so then...it's already got an amp turn on delay built into it...IIRC

        the M2 will turn on the computer only after it sees a regulated voltage coming in...

        then it waits a but before it sends the turnon to the amps...thus the anti-thump technology

        it's the same withthe M1-ATX in my car

        no delay circuit wired into the car...it works like a charm

          Wow, I am an idiot and just read the directions. That makes a lot of sense :-P

          Thanks!
