How to connect to 12V ignition in a Jeep Compass 2010 when installing a car stereo?

Hi there,

I couldn't find a more specific topic so I'm posting it under "General Discussion".

I'm trying to install an after-party car stereo. It came with a long red cable with a very specific termination. I believe that I should connect this cable to a fuse, however the fuse box in the Jeep Compass 2010 is under the hood and I don't think it's within reach.

I read that an alternative is to use the cigarette lighter as a power source, however I'm puzzled because I wouldn't know how to do that. If this alternative is correct, can you please guide me in connecting the red cable to the cigarette lighter?

Thanks in advance!

if not, i would get one from crutchfield.
i know thier prices are a bit high, but they come with great wiring data that makes it worth it
