You need to tap into a key hot at the least. If you tap into the yellow or constant your amp will always be on

if you have a stock radio you will need to find a key hot wire. perhaps the fuse box is a good spot for this.

do you have factory or aftermarket deck? the diagram is for an aftermarket deck. IF you have factory deck, then the wiring dia. is useless to you. You will need to find a key hot. But then again, if you have a factory deck how are you wiring subs...? you would need to find the speaker wires and run them to the high side of the amp. Which you will not know because factory wiring is a mess and has no rhym or reason.
