what did you want? one that's only on when the car's running or one that's on all the time?
if i were you i'd just go to the ignition harness under the dash and make sure to fuse the wire. here's the colors for both 12V and Accessory:
12V: Red
Accy: Yellow
Or, if you wanted it to only be on when the Key's in the "Run" position use the Green/Yellow stripe in the ignition harness.

don't you have a system in your car?
just add a wire going to the distribution block or [b+] and ground terminals on your amp...

I have the terminals on my amp powering a 70 watt invertor, which powers my camera.

negative, just the power inverter. The inverter only draws as much power as device being powered, 70 watts being the maximum output.

the camera itself is 8.5v, 1.6A, that's like 17 watts... but that's completely beside the point and off-topic...

I'd like to know whether zx34me found a solution to this...
