How to power a car subwoofer from my 120V outlet?
How To Wire a Car Amp to a Wall Outlet | It Still Works
If you've got a car amplifier you'd like to use in your home, there's one major obstacle to overcome: Wall outlets provide volt AC power, but amplifiers require volt DC power. You'll have to do a little extra wiring, but the problem is not insurmountable. Look up the input power specifications for your amplifier, using the manual or the manufacturer's website. Find the specification for current draw in amperes.
How to Properly Hook Up a Car Amplifier Inside the House
I was wanting to build a nice big box out of MDF with a few speakers and two subwoofers powered by an amplifier to hook up to a house's power outlet. I have heard of people using a PC power supply, and if that is true, what would be a sufficiently powerful power supply to run this system with, say, an watt amp. Also, are there better options than a standard PC power supply?
Hello everybody, recently i bought car amplifier for repair and decided that im gonna replace my Sony XM that i have been running as my subwoofer amplifier for a year now. I took this opportunity to write instructable on how to properly hook car amplifier for use inside of your house connected to mains voltage and what you should be careful about. There are many reasons why you would want to use car amplifier, but if you can choose between proper vv amplifier and car amplifier i would suggest you to pick house amp, its power supply is well designed and you will get proper power output out of it. Car amplifiers are mostly rated at 14,4V and lower impedances 1 or 2 ohm for example while some home amplifiers can only go as low as 4 ohms. Since you will be running it off 12V power supply more about that in further steps you might not get as stable power as you would in your car.
