    guess this is the place to post this.

    searched around and cannot find an answer.

    on the IGN, i found a wire, but its most likely 16-14 gauge.

    my question to you is, does the opus draw any power off the ign, or does it just use it as a trigger for a relay?

    hopefully the latter. i ran 8 feet of 10 from my battery, and am grounding in 3 places for everything, but it would be a real crapper if i smoked the ign line from too much draw.

    thanks guys.

    for clarification, the yellow line is trigger only, it does not draw any signifficant power. you can run whatever size line you want, as long at its not smaller than what the opus comes with.

    Someone should add to this FAQ, how to connect the 10g (suggested) red wire from wiring, to the Opus 14g red wire. Some say use a block distributor, others say solder, etc...

    After posting the correct answer, someone please delete my post (this one!).

    Just to clarify this, the Ignition wire is a trigger / sense wire only. Meaning, it doesn't have to be any fancy wire. Any circuit inthe car with ignition switching can be used.

    what if i want my amp to turn off at the same time as the 0pus. How would you recommend that i connect the IGN line of my APM to the OUTPUT of the 0pus. Where can I tap in so that I won't have a major malfucntion with my 0pus. Can i connect my amp's ign to one of the 12 V leads going to my fan. That way if there is a voltage drop it is only in a minor component like a fan?

    Now, if i do this my amp will stay on until my 0pus shuts off, that way i get 5 more seconds of music?

    Tell me if im wrong

    btw its an 0pus 150
