    I actually just asked this recently.

    You can use a battery or you can get a powersupply from a pc. I did the pc route.

    here is the way to do it

    NEVER buy from Dealer Cost Car Audio, ask me why

    Rainbow SLC+Tru 4.65 + RF 3sixty.2 = yum.

    would i just put the yellow wire into the amp if i wanted to use the power supply for the amp instead of the head unit?

    Yes, that would be your 12v. Just remember that it is 12v (not 14.4 like manufacturers sometimes specify). Also, my 350watt works well on a HU, but an amp has a tad bit more power draw
