Andy, I read where you stated that the MS-8 remote output connection is capable of 1 amp output. What happens if it is exceeded? I have five amplifiers running off it (4 JBL MS100.4 and a JBL BP2200.1) and was wondering if exceeding the 1 amp limit would cause harm to the MS-8 or cause it to shut down? Thanks homie.

any amp worth it's salt should only require a few miliamps for turn on. If you're afraid, to to radio Shack and get an MJE 3055T. Base to remote out, collector to 12V, emitter to amps.

I am just pulling my hair out trying to figure out why my MS-8 is quickly shutting off and restarting randomly after 20 minutes of turn on time. This is the second one I have had installed so I do not think it is the MS-8. I cannot figure out what is going on, and I thought maybe this was the problem. I have heard of people installing a relay when many electrical boxes are connected to the remote output of Head Units before and thought it might apply here. Thanks for the reply.
