Usually On Car Amplifiers, there is a Connector/Wire called "Remote On".
This is where Headunit supplies 12V to trigger the Power on the Amplifier.
(Of course, head unit usually has Remote Wire also in order to turn the Amplifier on).
If this wire is properly connected and still does not turn on, then try to supply 12V directly from the battery. If it turns on then your head unit has problem, If it does not turn on then your Amplifier has problem.

Simply answer no! Most amps shut off the speakers when a headphone is placed in the socket. So if you are worried just keep the headphones in when powering up. Most amps are only damaged when the speaker wires are shorted on something or touch each other.
People talk alot of **** about Pyle amps, all I can say is that,
I have two PT-2000 & PT-1800 power amps that I have set in bridge mode, one for each speaker and they are powering two Altec-Lansing 18" inch subs, one amp per speaker, no hiss, line noise or anything and the system kicks. I tried the Pyles on a whim because I got tired the trouble I was having with the QSC and Crown power amps, could not go a year without having something go wrong always sending back to dealer for some kind of fix! So now I have 2, QSCs, 2 Crowns & 4 Pyles driving my system
VU meters are generally illuminated by small bulbs at the back of them. It's unlikely to be a powerfull bulb perhaps 12 volts perhaps around 200ma at the most. Most electrical shops should sell something that should suffice. It could be an LED though!
You can use the amp stand alone. The remote connection turns the power amp on and off. I would connect it to +ve12v via a switch on the control panel of the boat. Turn on the switch when you want to use the amp. Good luck and happy punting!
