    Splitting ACC line

    I removed my Headunit from my car and I found the one labeled
    "Ignition-Switched Input"

    This is the correct wire to connect to the yellow wire on my opus correct?
    And is it ok if i run a total of 3 wires from it. 1 to the opus 1 to the Subwoofer amp 1 to the 4channel amp?
    If not how would i go about getting remote wires to the amps so that that they turn on too?

    Or would I need to do something like split one of my molex 12v connectors and run them to the amps?

    Sounds like it, just use a test light to be sure.

    Should be ok.

    IMO, I like running as much power as possible directly from the car. Sounds to me like you're on the right track.
    This is the way I ran my stuff, however I ran power to my amp through my cruise control relay, this way I can turn on my amp (through the steering wheel cruise button) after the pc has booted up. (To elliminate pop noise)

    Do you have a multimeter? It's always good to test things before you plug them in and a simple multimeter isn't expensive.
