Amp: you might as well get a home sub amp.

You need to get a different kind of amp. You need a home theater amp - a car amp won't work.

To operate a car amp indoors means either a portable 12v power source or a car battery. Using a car batt indoors is just not safe and most portable sources won't keep up with anywhere near that kind of draw. I have several power inverters I can connect to a 12v source to run small aplliances for a short period of time. Any significant draw shuts the inverter down and sounds an alarm. Manufacturers don't recommend running the portable while charging so you're limited to how fast you pull from it before you kill it. Mind you your amp wasn't made for this and will almost certainly void your warranty. Keep the car batts outside as well, last thing you want is any gases exploding. You've read ppl warning about this idea for more than one reason.

Possible yes. Smart?

also not bad when you consider thats 8000w @ 8 ohm.. translate that down to 1 ohm.. or even 0.5 ohm :P ... that would be one beastly amp if it handled that
