Default Stereo wiring

Right I'm an electrical numpty so can someone help me out with my stereo wiring

It's currently wired in so it comes on with the ignition
But I want to wire it up so it's seperate so I can have just my stereo running at shows.

How do I go about doing this?

On you fuse box thing you will have permanently live terminals if its the same as on a bug it's the ones on the left if you above it (looking at the connectors) just move the power wires form there current terminal to a permanent live one. You may want to put in a switch so it doesn't drain you battery when not in use hope this helps
