Default Amplifiers.... inductive or resistive load?

I put together a solid state relay (SSR) to control my proamp.I am controlling the trigger part by a 10 volt dc transformer which is hooked up to a 120v wireless transmitter...

My question is are pro amps considered an inductive load or a resistive load..dumb question but I am not sure..If it's an inductive load I will need to modify my relay a bit..by adding a diode to the load part. Any help will be appreciated.

At the moment in which a pro amp (?? do you mean professional amplifier or pre amplifier?) includes step-down transformer or transformers in its power supply, then it is without doubt a heavy inductive load.

The amplifier is a Crest CPX 2600 that I use to power my subwoofers...

Efxaristo!
