No power to the amp

I have the alpine mrp-m350 amplifier and i have all the connections except for the remote wire, i was wondering do i absolutly need this wire for it to work?

Hi there
its up to you the remote wire is just another power wire.....the remote wire can be by passed but every time you turn off your car you will need to unhook the 12v amp power wire from your cars battery (if you decide to do it this way)..........or you can hook up the blue wire from the back of your CD/DVD unit what ever you are using and every time your stereo turns off your amp will too..........
hope this has helped
