Building this for the 1st time & want to make sure my wiring is correct.

For the amp, Ill be using a Pyle Marine Bluetooth kit (which hardly has any wiring)

You need a ground to the amp and also the remote goes connected to the positive wire from the switch.

There isn't a remote wire on this particular amp (see link).

Is the rest of the wiring good to go?

Remote is the blue wire. I would run the postive wire from the amp to the battrry using the fuse for protection. Then the blue wire would land to the switch. Also look into one of these

Thanks for your help. Like I said before, the amp I purchased (link above) does not come with a remote wire (it doesn't require one). As for the socket you recommended, if you read my initial post you'll notice I already purchased one. Tested & it works great.

I'd just like to know if my wiring looks correct, & / or if I'm missing anything.

Thanks

That amp has 3 wires. It looks like a red, a black and a blue. What would you use the blue wire for?

Apologies I see now why you keep mentioning a blue wire, the picture shows a blue wire but the actual unit does not come with one. Maybe because its used for the bluetooth control. I attached a photo from the manual.
