most car audio shops just use power converters because they can only run one amp at a time and a power converter works well and is the easiest.

yeah use PC power supplies.. if you like setting your house on fire.

you need a 50 or 100 ampere AC to DC power supply. I see plenty of them on eBay for about $250-$400 US

He wants to run car audio amps from an AC source. That's the point. He's not trying to just run a sub in his house.

"use atx power supplies, only if you like to set your house on fire" - not true.

im currently running 6 Antec truepower 550w power supplies in parallel and they stay very cool.
i don't have any front/rear speakers yet because i need to build an enclosure for them first, but right now i have:

-Alpine CDA-9855 head unit
-Orion 1200D amplifier
-(1) RE XXX 12" Subwoofer
-Ported box tuned to 35Hz for SQL

it not only rattles my whole house, but i live in a duplex, it also rattles the neighbor's house and if i have the windows open it will shake some cars in my driveway, from the basement.
