    genral amp / 12v ps question

    can I use the 12v+ feed off the power supply ( that is not in use ) to feed to the ignition control on 2 amps?.

    The reason for wanting to do this is so the amps won't turn on until the Powersupply has switched them on. Otherwise I get feedback / EV noise from the MB while it isn't on.

    yup, 12volts is 12 volts, doesnt matter where it really comes from. The draw on the remote wire to the amps is minimal.

    For the remote turn on ? Yes you can.

    However, I would use a relay, feed 12v from the PS to the relay, and have
    the relay send 12v to the remote on the amp.

    just make sure you put a blocking diode across the relay pins or emf will do some nice damage to your ps.
