Dont mean to threadjack, but i was thinking of doing something similar. would it big a big deal if i ran like a 5 led strip off of each one of my amps so that when they turn on, the led's turn on with it? it seems like a viable option that wont affect blowing any fuses or anything. just might make it easier than tapping into parking lights and whatnot

any opinions?

Yes tapping into the amps remote wire will work as a switch for the lights i had a setup like that in an old truck i had. i had a neon mounted behind the amp that was lit when the amp was on. that is how i did it and it worked great had it like that for quite a few years.

Would you just be able to splice into the domelight wires or will it not work without soldering the resistors in?
