In January, I bought a 12V 1500mA wall wart to use as a trigger for my EP350. I called Axiom after that and asked how much amperage was needed; they said about 100mA. Unfortunately, I'm lazy and I forgot to take back the 1500 to Ratshack to get something smaller (and cheaper). So here's the question: if all the sub wants is 100mA to turn on, will the wall wart be providing only that 100mA, or will it try to push 1500mA (and therefore pull 1500mA from the circuit?)

Your safe, the sub will draw what it needs, that all!
The wart will "push" voltage not current.

That's what I figured, but I did want to check before I did something stupid. Like forgetting to return the thing for a month. ;\)

BTW, all, I hooked up my improvised trigger yesterday, and it works perfectly. There's a little click (I assume it's a relay in the EP350) when it comes on or off, but it seems to be just fine. I'm using the auto-on/off simultaneously, and that works as well as it always has.
