As long as the remote can handle the current, you can remote control any amount of amps you want.

If what you are trying to do is add another amp in your car, the remote has a limited amount of current but should be enough to control the amps on and off. Other connections are the same. Look at the specs on how much current the remote can send in your system, and how much is required. You may also have a crossover to seperate the inputs and it too may have a remote switch. Shouldn't be a problem.


BTW, shouldn't this thread be in Car Audio? mods?

Make sure the ground and power wires can handle the additional load. You can normally run up to three amps off one remote out, after that you're in shakey territory where it would be better to just get a relay to boost the signal.

Connect your remote turn on to a Bosch relay to avoid any risk. The site below can give you all the info you need.
