    Default 12V Trigger

    Im looking for a remote trigger that will power up my Xpa-5, i've been doing a lot of reading on wall-warts and want to make sure that i get the right one. Also any help on triggering my Rotel?
    Thanks

    Are you using the 120v switched outlet to turn the wall wart on and off? Does the Rotel have a switched outlet?

    In the above scenario any small 12v wall wart will work, the trigger hardly flows any current. The key is testing for polarity (+ and -) of the 12v output to be correct for the amp trigger input.

    I fire up amps dvd xover all kinds of stuff that panamax ?1500? was well worth the $$ and when the releys wore out panamax sent me a brand new unit for $25 , its a great company !

    certain panamax's does not have a 117 v trigger it only has a 12v trigger in that case you will need a wall wort plugged into rotel (does it have a switched outlet) .
    I had a older panamax it was like 2" tall, it had a place where the 117v triger plug plugs in from the AVR but my newer m5100didnt so I had to purchase a 12v wallwort and the panamax had a ?1/4"? female plug for that , actually the replacement for the old one had no trigger the 5100 did (but needed a wallwort ) . I GREATELY recomend calling panamax !
