Default ACC 12 v tap for aftermarket HU?

Anyone know where to hook up power for an aftermarket HU so that it comes on when only "acc" is turned on? I hate to have to turn the whole ignition on just to listen to the radio.....I'm going back to the audio place this afternoon and I wanted to be able to tell them where.....
