    Found a 5 amp mini timer i can use for my amp to delay the speaker output turn on.The amp is a BiAmp cpa130 .The mini timer can be flash programmed and works from 5-18v input ,max 5 amp output.I can get a couple relays and tie the output through relay and itll give me the 3 second delay i need to prevent thd turn on thump.
    Whats yalls opinion?Can i run it off the +15v rail?

    You're likely to overload the amp's existing +15V rail by attempting to drive one or more 12V relay coils from it.

    Google time delay relay. Surplus units can be very cheap.
