Re: How many volts does and amp remote wire carry?

I thought the remote wire only had a small voltage because all it does is send a signal to the amp

Buy a voltmeter and see what voltage you measure,at the amps remote turn on connector.

Oh............and it's not a 'signal'.It's just a voltage and a small amount of current.A signal has to do with a frequency,either analog or digital.Not trying to be an ass,just want to let you no the difference.

I know it's 12v for sure with any standard deck, although I'm not entirely sure that it matters what the voltage is. As long as there is enough voltage there to turn on the amp it should be fine.

You can even just run a wire from any power source in the car to a switch, then from the switch to your amp's remote and use that to turn it on/off. Doesn't have to be the remote wire.

Re: How many volts does and amp remote wire carry?

Why not use a switch that illuminates red when it's turned on?

Re: How many volts does and amp remote wire carry?

if you are the least worried about it, then put in a relay, then who cares about the voltage.

or you can wire in the led which takes almost no power, and not worry about it, because it is not enough voltage to worry about.

just so you know, some amplifiers like, um cheap ones (pioneer, power acoustik, etc etc) have been known to draw up to 10 amps through the remote lead. so always using a relay (4.99 at most autopart stores) kind of makes sense if you think about it.

their is doing an install right, then there is doing an install right and proper.
