    i am finally fitting my new boot build this weekend, with it i need to run 2 small fans to keep the amps cool.
    i was told buy a friend that builds installs that the best way to power them is off a wire from the ignition so they come on every time the ignition is on.
    which wire do i need to run into for this?

    use the switched live to the amp to flick a relay, and that will start the fan.

    Run fans from the ignition fed live and earth on your amps,hardly no wiring then and they are only on when the amps are.
