Ignition wire.. where?

Ok I currently have my amp hooked up to the lights (12v remote cable) and obviously this is not a good solution as the lights must be on for the amp to work. Does anyone have information on where the ignition cable is so I can connect the remote to that.

Failing the ignition cable does anyone know if the ciggarette lighters turn off once the key is removed? Because I could also use the ciggarette lighter in the center console.

Any ideas?

The power goes from the fag lighter, when the key is out or turned to the off position.

Eco display
Cig socket and all aux power sockets (armrest and boot) turn off when the ignition is turned off.

Think he's using it for the Remote wire.
Would look like a disco if you hooked the amp directly to it, well it would untill fuses went.
