was about to say, thanks to chase and his marvellous thinking, he put the remote from the battery to the amp on mine since I lost the remote wire I had, the new wire running from the battery has a fuse on it so when I'm not using it I just need to remove the fuse, I know its a hassle going in and out the bonnet all the time, but when I get around to fitting the popper to the boot lid then I can just take the fuse out the amp to kill the power. It works, its just a round about way of doing it.

Yeah I have my remote from my amp going to a switch and power and negative from the switch to cig lighter

You're all now going to say that "whats the point in that? cig lighter works on ign live"

Well because I'm not the only person who drives my car and I don't think my dad would always want my sub on ;)
