SPST Automotive Round Rocker Switch w/Blue LED 12V
how would you wire this switch to a TA2024 amp that is being powered by a battery pack? If it cant, what is the best switch to use?
I would recommend a simple SPST switch without illumination for an application like this. It simply wires in line with the positive power input.

will these switches work in a wet marine environment??
Not for long. Do yourself a favor, use only marine rated switches, which have all copper contacts. They cost more however they will last.

What size connectors are required to hook up to the terminals?
These terminals are 3/16" wide.

So I didn't plan it out... I bought this switch for 18.5V DC power supply. Is there something I can do so the little LED won't fry? Perhaps a resistor on the ground terminal, or something? 12V regulator?.....
I think a 470 ohm resisitor on the ground terminal should bring down the voltage enough.If you really wat to play it safe you can go with a 620 ohm or even a little higher. The led may start to look dim if you go with too high a value, but should be ok up to 1000 ohms.

Wiring when switching ground instead of positive?
I need to use the switch to switch ground rather than 12v positive. Will led work if i have "+" and "A" hooked to ground and the horizontal hooked to 12V positive or will the polarity cause LED not to function? (if so i'll just use a relay in conjunction)
I doubt the led will work unless they have a rectifier for it in there. I wonder how easy it would be to open the switch up and flip the wires on the LED.

The picture shows 16A but description says rated 20A which is correct?
This product is rated for 16A maximum at 12VDC. I apologize for the error in our description, we will have it corrected right away.
