Home stereo in my car

 

Anonymous
 
I don't know if this will work, but I was wondering if I could put my JVC stereo in the trunk of my car and play it through my ac/dc converter? Can I use the amp-preouts on my headunit into the auxilary ins on my stereo? This is a mini-shelf system from my room. Please help.

Yes. I use a JVC boombox as a sub woofer. It works. Be sure to get an inverter with enough watts to power your system. Look at the back of the unit to get the total amp draw. Each amp is about 115 watts. A 400 watt inverter may be the ticket.

Back in days before "quality" car audio I remember hearing about a guy that installed an AC generator in his car and used high-end home amps. Of course he could only listen to tunes while the car was running.

-Fishy :P

Why even go through all the headache. you would be better off just putting real car audio gear in your car.

the speakers in my car suck... i wanna put the speakers from my home system in my car cuz they're sick and are much better. how would i go about it?

and also... the maximum wattage that is used is determined by the head unit in the car, right? or the speakers...

All you who knock this are probably daddy's boys who think money grows on trees. I have 2 1975 Sansui 15'' 5 way home speakers in my back seat of my 86 Caprice Wagon. I paid $225 bucks for the car, I was given the radio (a jvc cd player that has a blown internal amp and the cd player doesnt work) and a Blaupunkt 200 watt amp I bought at the flea market for $15 bucks. I found the speakers in someones trash. This setup shakes pictures in the house with me playing it in the yard.

Hey Shaggin, if you can produce great sounds with parts then more power to you. That's what hobby is all about. Making things work without paying a fortune. People can't believe that I can produce great sounds with my Audiobahn and Jensen amps. I'm enjoying mine every single day.
This is for all those that want to use home stereo in their cars. You'll need a power inverter for your stereo. If you don't already have 4 gauge power wires hooked up, you'll need that. Now instead of feeding it to your car amp, you feed it to the car inverter. Then plug your home stereo into it. Now connect your speakers, subs, etc to it.
If you can manage to hide it from thieves's view then it'll be alright.
If you already have good speakers in your car, you can still use it depending on your home stereo. Some of them will support 4 - 8 ohms. If not, you can always double up on the 4 ohms and turn it into 8ohms by connecting it in series.
Hope that helps.
