alright im tackling a 97 altima and redesigning the rear end and im going to be puting 3 amps in the rear.  so can i run the three amps off one wire or should i run three seporate wires?    I personally would run them from one if it was my car but i want to do thing right  for my friend.

any feed back would be great

If your speaking about the remote turn on wire, you need to use a relay for the amps

Look on this page for relays

Now if you were talking about just power, you would use a Distrubution block to distrubite power to the amps

Yes a relay would be smart, though i have fan 2 amps and a couple fans off of a remote wire without any problems... just not the greatest wear and tear on a deck...

I run four amplifiers and two relays off one remote lead. Amps need about 20mA to turn on, and most head units can supply about 200 to 500mA on their remote lead. Should be no problem to do three amplifiers at all...
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

i would suggest a soundstream power plant it will give you the ability to hookup 4 amps with out problems it is the best thing i have found for multiple amps it looks nice to

today i used a remote wire from a clarion marine radio. it has been turning on two amps for a while. i hooked up a third amp and just piggy backed the remote wire to it. it worked fine for a while until i cranked it. then the radio stopped working. i tested power and ground, all good. its like i smoked the radio. is this possible from overloading the remote? i also observed the radio was hot. hotter than normal operation. is this coincedence or the remote?
