No problem-an easy mod.  I installed an SPST toggle switch on the upper left
corner of the back panel (above all the connections.  I interuppted the signal
to the base of the relay driver transistor and ran it through the switch.  I
can reach over the radio and toggle the switch when I want to engage the amp.
Otherwise I operate with the relay silenced.  

It is a ten minute mod except you have to drill a small hole in the back-ouch!
I hate to deface anything- but no one sees it and it doesn't really look out
of place.  Wonder why TT didn't do it in the first place?

The Omni VI silences the relay in software, but you have to scroll through the
menu sytem to do it.   Simple old me- I prefer the switch!
