    You should always wire the amp's +12V power input direct to the battery (or a junction off the battery). If your head unity doesn't have a remote or power antenna wire (which you can use instead of the remote wire), you can connect the remote wire to any switched 12V wire. The switched +12V to the stereo (not the constant 12V memory wire), should be usable as well.

    I second you dobey, the only place you should ever draw a 12v constant for your amp should be the better. Inline fuse rated correctly should always be added and switching that wire does nothing good for you other then add resistance to the circuit
