Default HELP! aftermarket HU is draining the battery!

i just put in an aftermarket JVC head unit into my 97 bonneville SSE with the bose dynamic crap. I connected the orange amp wire from the back of my factory head unit to the remote turn on / power antenna wire coming out of the JVC HU. Ever since, it'* been draining the battery and taking forever to start. there'* no way that the amp is still drawing power after i turn the car off is there? i guess the only other option is to bypass the amp, but i don't want to go through the hassle if i don't have to. any suggestions?

oh yeah, the power antenna is also connect to the same remote wire, so basically here is the setup coming out of the back of the jvc HU....

1 remote wire connected to two different wires, 1 for the factory bose amp, and the other for the power antenna.
