Hi All,

This may sound like a dumb question but, what is the function ofthe 12 volt trigger?

A 12V trigger allows you to turn a component such as an amp on when a preamp (having the trigger feature) is turned on. The amp contains a relay circuit that detects when a voltage of approximately 12 volt is applied/removed and switches the amp on or off.
