u can hook it to the red switched ignition wire on the back of ur radio alpines that dont have rca's jacks dont have remote wires . If u want ur amp to shut off if u turn ur radio off u ll have to use a small switch /toggle switch . :cool: thats how we do it at work i work a car stereo shop for 7 yrs . try that tho :)

^^^^What he said. If you don't replace the stock head unit you'll have to put in a switch for your amps.

I picked these off of ebay...



It has RCA and remote already wired in, just plug and play. Only 30 shipped and it works great

I don't like the switch way to turn off the amps, as I forget sometimes and kill batteries.
The best way IMO is to wire the remote turn on to the ignition so your amps go off when car is turned off. I hardly ever ride with the radio off, this way you never forget to turn it off and come out to a dead car in the morning.
