You splice into the speaker wires.....

Get some speaker wire, splice into the vehicle speaker wires. Then run those wires to the magic box. Plug in the RCA lead from the box to the amp....

I have my amp in the back so have spliced into the rear speaker wires...

I did mine to the cigarette lighter...

Cool thing is if you like drive ins or working on your car it keeps the Sub & Amp off if you just hit the on button on the radio with the ignition off.
