Amp wiring question

I'm planning to install an amp/sub in my 2013 JKUS later this week. I'm fairly confident with most aspects of the installation with the exception of the remote turn on wire for the amp.
I do have the Alpine system, so I have the power outlet near the stock sub and was thinking that I could tap into that for the remote turn-on lead, but I'm just not sure if that's workable.
If anyone could give me some pointers about this (especially what wire to tap) that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.

Depending on the amp, you won't need a remote turn on wire. Many amps that allow high level connections sense power through the speakers and turn in the amp.
