Default remote turn on

i have two amps with the remote turn on in serial. and i know a cap needs a remote turn on too... any potential risk of remotely turning on 3 things.... from the HU? mr. crutchfield people said that if i wire too many things i could burn out the HU so thats why i'm askin.. if any of you are SURE

mine turned on 3 things before, maybe you should hook up a relay just to be safe.

When in doubt, err on the side of caution. A simple Bosch relay will do the trick.

I have turned on 3 items before, but the relay install is so simple and costs only a few $$, that it's almost a no brainer.

yea i'd look into a relay for your 3 remotes. but still 3? that's pushing it a little bit to close for me. If i were u, i wouldn't hook all 3 to the HU. Instead, i'd probably hook them up to the cig. ligher and from that either add a relay or even upgrade the fuse to handle a higher load. Once u fry ur HU, it's almost good as gone!
