Question type: Car Customization

I am hooking up a LOC (line out converter) to hook up my system and keep the stock radio. Which of the wires do i need to splice for my remote? My car does not have the factory amp!

according to the website I found, the remote wire would be a dark green 12v wire. http://www.modifiedlife.com/2008-chevrolet-malibu-car-stereo-wiring-schematic/

Is that a constant that i would need to turn off my amp every time or is that going to turn off with the ignition?

Your constant is going to be a red or white wire. The dark green* wire will turn on and off with the ignition just as your factory stereo does.
