Angry 2012 amp wiring!

I just put 2 12's In my 2012 wrangler it still has the stock stereo in it I wired the RCA wires to a PAC harness for stock stereos everything is done but I don't know where to run the remote wire so the amp is only on when the Jeep is on and ideas???

If the stock HU doesn't have any kind of remote/amp wire then use any keyed ignition source of power.

i am pretty sure the dash cigarette lighter is only on when the ignition is, you might try that.

I'm in the same boat as you logan.2012.wrangler! but the bad news for me is I'm 8 months behind you in this project. For my amp all I'm trying to do now is identify + & - from the correct speakers so I can successfully splice behind the stereo w/the PAC that I have for my amp and two subs.
