    Opus Ignition line

    When you hook up the opus where do you hook the ignition line to? Does it goto the accessory line or what, because I tried hooking it up to mine and no luck. I was hopeing I wouldnt have to wire another wire up to the front of my car.

    It just ties into any line that is powered when the ignition is turned on, right? I don't have an Opus (yet ), but that sounds right to me... but what do I know

    I've been talking to Kris from Opus lately about another situation but he says to go off of the ACC line.

    So the accessory line? As in the same line that my amps are hooked up to that tells them to turn on? Yeah tried that and it didnt boot. Is there anything that I am missing? maybe jumper settings?

    hook up a meter on the yellow line at the opus and see what it reads, it should be greater than 11.5v

    the keyword is "AMPS" mon,
    you may be using up too much juice, if your using multiple amps you'll probably have to use a relay soon.

    you might have the power button wire crossed up.. the polarity matters! I had a similar problem.. all i had to do was turn the power button wire around (it only connects in one direction on the supply, try turning around on the mobo)

    I have tried both ways on that lil power button cable. I think it is the fact that my speaker and my sub amps are pulling to much juice from the acc line. Anyone wanna explain to me how to use the relay thing, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Relays.

    Basicly, what your doing is running 12V Constant power into the relay, then you are running a single "Ignition" or "accessory" wire to the relay. then on the output of the relay you run a wire to a power distribution block or somthing. Then, you use this "Out" as your new source for Accessory or "Igintion" wires.

    When you buy a relay, they usually have a schematic to look at.

    this way when you turn your CD player or Ignition on, it turns the relay on which gives your new accessory wires full juice/12V Direct.
    Its like a switch.

    Sorry if this email is cornfusing, Im not so good at explaining!
