    Post Amplifier install

    A few weeks ago I installed a new head unit in my girlfriend's car, I ran a set of rca's at the same time also so that I could easily hook it up to an amp. So today I went to hook up the amp and realized I forgot to hook up the remote wire. I would normally just pull the unit out and splice the wire, but I have to basically take the whole dash apart to get to the wires. So my question is can I make the amp work without connecting the remote to where we all know it should go, (when I say remote I am referring to the small wire that allows the amp to turn on, it goes into a plug labled rem), or do I have to go to the trouble of taking the dash apart again?

    You could connect it to the acc line.

    just connect it to any wire thats on when the car is on... it needs +12V at anywhere between .05A and 1A probably ... its a relay to turn the amp on.

    What I did was connected it to the fuse of the radio. Dodge Acc. lines are hard to get to. I originally had it directly connected to the battery with a switch to turn it on/off, but I got tire of flipping the switch all the time. M.A.V.I.C. System
