You would need two position toggle switches.  Switches that have a common power input and can swiitch the power to one of two different outputs.

 Toggle switch
One end goes to your power supply and the other end goes to your amp.  In between are the two toggle switches with 2 wires between them.

Note that I couldn't see the contents of nobus's file so I'm not sure what is in that.

What you are looking for is a 12 volt spdt (single pull double throw) switch.  I believe radio shack carries them.  While the attached image is for house electricity, the principle is the same spdt

@nobus:

my apologies for posting the same type of answer, I just thought this diagram may be easier to read, I was unsure as to the knowledge level of the orig author.  If points are assigned, you should have them.
