I am running 2 5 channel and one single outlaw amps with a marantz receiver. The receiver has one trigger and the single amp has an out, but that leaves one amp without a trigger. Any suggestions?
 
Maybe there are adapter boxes that do this but u can potentially parallel trigger 2 boxes at the same time by using a Y cable only. Doing this way you just have to be aware of amperage available to operate. If the receiver TRIGGER-OUT is spec for 20mA capacity, then it can simultaneously trigger 2 boxes spec to require 10mA each (or less) to trigger.

If you are uncomfortable with the above, u can always use a smart power strip in lieue of remote triggers. I do recommend a smart strip/power center with delay triggers for this application.
