Amp control : on/off?

I have a Alpine 7875 HU, 750watt Pioneer Amp, and two Jensen subs.

There is no amp controller wire on my wiring harness so the amp will always stay on. Can I use the power antenna wire or another wire labled IN INT for the controller?

Don't use the power antenna wire because your amp will only turn on whenever you listen to the AM/FM radio.

the remote wire on the amp is what controls when the amp turns on or off....that wire should be connected to a power source that only comes on when the car is on.
