i am trying to figure out a good way to put my car amp in my room to power my car sub in my room. the best setup i can think of is putting a car battery in my room and hooking the battery charger on it to power my amp but the charger can only charge at 10 amps and my amp is 1200 watts rms, you do the math. is there a better way, like something i can plug in the wall that will power my amp or something or should i give up on the whole thing?
I have a stereo that puts out 140 RMS at 8 ohms from the sub output. I hooked it up to an audiobahn sub of mine at 4 ohms, and it plays pretty loud seeing that everytime I turn it up, I get a call from my neighbor telling me to turn it down (even with my and their windows and doors closed).
Get a Dc power supply. i got a raidoshack 25 amp DC power supply and hook it up to my deck and then to JL 500/1 and a Jl 12w6v2 and it sound pretty decent. It Don't bump to hard because of the little current
Large power supplies are generaly expensive. I was thinking of one of those battery chargers used to jump you car and puts out like 50amps. I doubt that it can put out 50 amps very long though. maybe you could put a fan on it and run it longer.
Car subs and home audio subs are generally different. Many car audio subwoofers have an FS (resonance frequency) around 30 hertz. Home audio drivers are ussually around 15-20 hertz. Due too the high FS of the car sub, it will have a hard time reproducing notes below 30 cycles. It won't work in a conventional home theatre vented alignment b/c you shouldnt tune below a drivers FS and most home vented applications tune around 18-24 cycles. Basically, a car subs response is designed for a car, not your living room.
ive made a ht sub outa car sub two kicker 8 inch comps sounded good and still gets low enough to rumble....just get plate amp from parts express.. it,ll work.. here this summer im building a ported box for my stroker 15 and turning it into a ht sub.. thats if i decide to get a stroker pro 15...the regular stroker i have its fs is 30 i think and i have no doubt that it will hit low enough..
