Power

What can I hook up to my antenna adapter to give it power?? I've played my CD's to death and want the radio, but ever since I put in my Clarion, I had to get an antenna adapter and it needs power. HELP!

One would think, but the stock antenna came with it's own power source, this just allows the clarion to recieve the signals from the antenna so I need to power it to work. Can I just split a power wire and hook it up??

Hook it up to the Clarion's power antenna lead (blue, I think).
