Look underneath where the fuse box is inside the cab. You'll find two connectors that aren't connected to anything. One has two pins the other has four. These connectors are for the mobile phone wiring and you can get power that is switched on and off by the ignition from the four pin's the black wire with a stripe running down it.

Join that to your Remote Power terminal on the amp and that will switch it on an off when you turn the key to accessories. Connect the positive terminal on the amp to the positive terminal on the battery, and use a fuse as close to the battery as you can. If your car is an auto, you can just pull out the grommit where the clutch is supposed to go and get the cable through the firewall there.

All I did to connect the negative terminal on the amp to ground was just drill a hole under the seat and sand a bit of paint away then used a bolt to connect the wire to the chassis.
