    hook the remote wire to the battery (or accessory line) and put a small toggle switch under your dash --- then,when you turn your deck on, turn on the switch - amps will go on... when u turn your deck off, turn off the switch, amps will go off. just make sure to turn the damn thing off at night or the amps will stay keyed on standby all night long.

    I had a Kenwood that had a bum remote lead so I did it this way and it worked for years. Find the radio fuse in the fuse block and run your remote turn on wire from that fuse to your amp.

    Doing this will send voltage to your amp when the ignition is turned on and will turn on your amp whenever you either turn on the ignition or the accessories. It will also turn the amp off when you turn the ignition off.

    The only drawback is that, as long as you have the ignition or accessories on, the amps wont turn off when you turn the cd player off since the signal from the fuse box is always on with the ignition.

    Wheter you do it like I suggested or the way PBD said, either way the same wire will work for all amps.

    There is nothing fancy about a remote turn on. It is simply a supply of voltage that turns on the amps. Its not a power source and has no effect on amp output (other than turning them on). Just run the wire from the fuse box or toggle switch to both amps and it will work fine.

    Dont forget to fuse the remote turn on lead.

    also, I think there are units that sense a signal via the RCA jacks to provide a power source for amp remotes.

    Usaully used when people are just adding a sub and amp to a factory head unit. :D
