    Ditch the relay...don't need it...
    Connect the PSU and amp remote on directly to the ACC line in the ignition key...
    Do NOT tap into the headunit for remote on for the PSU especially! The amp is okay there though...
    Or you could even use one of the outs on the PSU to turn on your amp, depending on which PSU your using..."Anti-Thump".

    What PSU have you got?

    On my M2-ATX I have remote output, but it comes on allmost immidiately as my soundcard will give bump when initialized by PC half a minute later.

    You can try and find a soundcard that doesn't do this, or delay the signal. Best is probably something that can be enabled by PC when it is done booting.

    well tight now i have the M2 but it only has 2 powewr wires and the shutdown and I made the startup/shutdown controller. and the pc is hooked to the headunit. already have too many wires running so i thought that will be easier to use a relay
