Why is my sound system draining my battery?

I recently got a sound system, a small 2600 watt boss amp with one 10" subwoofer with a 4 gauge kit.
I have a 2000 vw Jetta vr6.
Now, when I open the car door, when the vehicle is off, the bass pulses and the lights flicker with the odometer and clock.
I noticed the amp is turned on constantly, so it is

I recently got a sound system, a small 2600 watt boss amp with one 10" subwoofer with a 4 gauge kit.
I have a 2000 vw Jetta vr6.
Now, when I open the car door, when the vehicle is off, the bass pulses and the lights flicker with the odometer and clock.
I noticed the amp is turned on constantly, so it is constantly drawing power.
Where would a connection issue occur in the wires? I had a professional shop hook this up.

Best Answer:

Caleb: The remote turn on lead for the amp must be connected to a constant source instead of a switched source as it should be. It's a beginner type mistake.

If this shop is even a little bit ethical they should fix this quickly and with no hassle at all — and hopefully apologize for making such a dumb mistake.

Other answer:

Caleb:
Lol that shop is not professional if they did this. Do what Dollar Bill said and take it back and hope they didn't cause any other issues with your wiring.
Alex:
The remote wire is probably not connected or not working properly or it's connected to a constant source like N2Audio said.
Dollar Bill:
Take it back to the professional, it is hooked up wrong right behind the radio.
