  • M1-ATX PSU to enable Amp startup

    On the psu it has a 2pin fan connector (as you get on a motherboard) which is used to go to the memory part of your amp so that when the pc is turned on the amp gets turned on.
    The problem I'm facing is an amps memory only consists of 1 wire whereas on the psu it has the 2 pin connector.

    How do I go about wiring this up?

    Only one of those two pins needs to be connected to your amp's remote connection. It is the left one that you need to use. Hopefully you still have the manual, it's the left connector of J2. Orientation: make sure the writing "AMP ENA" on the PCB is upright.

    If still not sure, use a multimeter prior to making your connection.

      You do not have to ground the other wire? I ran the (+) to my amps. The "other" one i connected to ground. I HOPE I didn't do anything wrong there..

      Only thing is..I get a pop when my system shuts down. Not at the beginning like most people.

        I use only the positive. No pop on either start up or shut down.
