    I just ordered by Digitrack stuff, along with 2 DS54's. I was planning on using a few 1 output of the DS54 to power 2 snapswitches in a crossover, however, I found a warning just now in the pdf manual. Anyone doing this? What's the warning all about? I know I can get a snap relay, have the ds54 power that, then it power the 2 snapswitches, but that's just more $$$..

    Thanks, Billy

    Hey Connor, it must have something to do with being a pluse signal sent to the snap switch. I went thru the manual and couldn't find an explanation other than the warning. My suggestion would be to contact digitrax or just use 2, rather safe than sorry.

    Yea, I think I'm going to shoot off a email to them asking them.. I did find out that using a snaprelay isn't going to work either.. as it's not momentary and would continually power the snap-switches.. What a pain in the a$$.. :)
