Default LED's in port?

bought some strip led's for the port in my box and trying to figure out the best way to run them... I cant run them off the power and ground for my amps or else they will always be on, so what will be the best way to power them, a relay?

only one amp. wiring up a relay is a lot of work for some lights, its in my girlfriends car, and there isnt any distros, so i would have to come all the way from the battery. could i possibly splice off of the remote, will that provide enough power to run the leds?

When i did mine a few years back i ran them to my switching 12v on my deck wires and ran it to a switch so i could manually shut them on and off. I only had 4-5 leds tho not a whole strip.

Just take the time to wire in a relay. It's worth it, all you'll need it in the future anyway.

I have tested that amp about a bazillion times. I know what it does clean, clipped, dirty, loaded, unloaded, wired down, low voltage, good voltage, after it hot, while it's cool, on caps, on batts, where it protects, what's thermal limits are and just about anything else anyone would care to know about it.

But thanks for chiming in. Your opinion is duly noted.
