Installing sub on stock headunit... Remote wire on harness?

hey,
I have an 06 WRX.
I am installing a sub an amp to the stock 6 disc headunit. Everything is installed but the amp wont power on because I cannot figure out which wire on the harness is the Remote wire for the amp.
I am getting no power on the amp or anything, and our guess is the remote wire.

Does anyone know which wire is the remote wire for the amp?
or any more information or links?

Thanks!

okay heres what u can do...with the radio plugged in and on, take ure remote wire from the amp and tap into whatever wire u think is the remote turn on in the radio harness. if the amp comes on, make sure ure not connected to the 12v wire by turning the radio off and seeing if the amp cuts off or not. does ure car have a factory amp? if not then i doubt there will be an remote turn on in the harness. if this is the case just find the accessory wire in the harness

I know this might be a dumb question. Where do you find one of those?

you can buy them at car audio stores. Best buy might have them but not on the shelf go to the instal section and ask I think they are called an rf adaptor. or order one at.http://www.hifisoundconnection.com/S...0046/set_num/2
