what color wire

does anyone know what color wire the ignition on wire is so i can t-tap into it to hook up a memory wire for my amp? i was hoping to get the subs in this weekend, also i cant find a good place to run my 4g power wire, what did the rest of you guys with systems do? i was hoping on not drilling any holes, but i will as a last resort.

thanks for all the help.

The amp shouldn't have a memory wire. The only wire besides pos, neg, speaker and rca cables is the turn on wire that should go to the stereo so the amp turns on when you turn on the stereo.

I'm not sure about the color but use the one that is switched so your amp doesn't stay on 24/7 and drain your battery.
