Default Remote Power Feed for Amp

I just acquired a non-bose 2002 Bonny SLE... Want to add amp for subs, but keep factory HU. I have been reading in the forums that there is no great remote power source for amps, other than the auxiliary power outlet for backseat.

Isn't it possible to just tap into the audio fuse located under the back seat, won't thisl shut down amp when radio turns off????

Your fuse box always has power because of the main positive lead going into it. Could be wrong. I tapped into my cig lighter in the dash. It turns off 15 mins after your car does.

Default Remote switched 12v feed for amp on factory hu

Yeah I found that out soon after i posted question...BUT I did some research and found a product that is both a hilo converter (speaker leads to rca pre-amp) and a low voltage trigger for switched 12v power. Works perfect and amp turns on and shuts off with the radio. It is made by Pacific Accessories Corp and product code is PAC-TrunkLOC
