Default Toggle switch for 50amp subwoofer setup?

I am installing a 600w RMS amp/subwoofer on the back of my cart. The max amp draw on the amplifier is 50amps. Because of this I purchased a separate 48->12v converter rated at 60amps. However, it does not come with a remote on wire. Does anyone know of any 48v/50a toggle switches out there I can put between my battery pack and reducer for turn on?

Thanks!!

After reading more, if I did a 48v 60a relay switch between the key switch and inverter, would that be safe? Or would the amp draw going through the key switch and the rest of the line back to the battery pack be too much? Would the gauge of wire on the key switch matter?

Thanks

Incase anyone comes across this forum in a search, here is what I ended up doing. Switches donít come that big so I used relays combined with lower amp switches to get the job done! Attached is a picture of my complete wiring with both amps. Itís kind of a mess but if you have any questions Iíll try and help.

Sure, I'm always down to show off my baby! Ended up going with a 600w amplifier and 3 8" subs. I had to make a custom box to fit under the rear seat due to the weird bump in the bag tray. It hits HARD lol. The rest of the cart has more than I can list lol. Also included a picture of the battery bay so you can see the overhead speaker amp, two converters, and fuse box. Let me know if you have any questions!

Wow. Well down. The beauty of the 4x12v battery config is you have all that room in the middle to create a nice accessory setup. I was just telling a neighbor about that last night. He wants to get a cart and add lots of mods. I told him the 4x12v YDRE is the easiest to work on IMO.

Personally I envy the 6 by 8v setup of my neighbors because of the longer run time but you are absolutely right, they all hate how clean my setup is. Yamaha did a great job leaving a large flat area in the middle!
