    Technically you do not need relays for the S2 sports as they only draw 1 amp each. A switch with a 3A rating or higher will safely survive turning two S2 Sports on and off. Sometimes relays are a good idea for control as you can use different switch options, but not required.

    You are welcome.

    Things to consider when mounting lights (all of which google pretty well)

    1- the current draw of the lights (assuming we are only talking 12V systems).

    2- the current rating of your switch or switching relay.

    3- the current rating of the size of wire you are running.

    4- the fuse or breaker needed to protect the wire (blow open) if the wire chafes against the frame or the LED lamp fails.

    5- the total distance between your battery, your switch or relay, and the lights. A longer run may require a larger wire to keep full voltage at the light.

    6- whether you want the light wired so it can always be turned on, or if it is only turned on when the ignition is on (this is where relays come in handy)
