Power To Radio Speakers

I had a post related to this some time ago. I wanted to use my dash radio on my 2007 Damon Tuscany without having to turn on the ignition key. I followed the posted recommendations (which included adding an inline fuse and a switch on the dash) and everything went great. Well, almost everything!!
When I turned the radio on everything worked great, except there was no sound. I didn't realize that the power for the speakers also goes through the ignition key.
Does anyone have any suggestions or cautions? My thought are to run the same power from the switch to the speakers but I don't want to damage the speaker system by connecting the power to the wrong wire.

that's weird
my radio can be turned on with the key no where to be found

you may have an amp that needs powering up to drive the speakers

Yes, our dash radio was factory wired to coach power, not chassis. Its powered all the time if the batteries are connected.

With the remote, it works well throughout the coach. Was actually pretty pleased with it. Did replace the ceiling mounted speakers and that helped sound quality alot.
