Ignition wire for bluetooth speakers/clock

Looking for some help locating the ignition wire that I need to connect my set of bluetooth speakers to. There are three wires: Black, Red, and Green. Black to battery negative, Red to battery positive, and Green to ignition.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Use the switched accessory plug in the headlight bucket.

Dan also needs a + battery connection to keep the clock running. I would still use the accessory connector in the headlight bucket for - and switched (ignition) power. I would tap constant (battery) power from the supply to the speedometer. My M50 wiring diagram says it is red with a black tracer, but I would check with a voltmeter. BTW both circuits are already fused, so I would not use any fuse holders that came with the Bluetooth, as they would be redundant.
