Powering a car amp with AC current?


Unregistered guest
I know there's a lot of posts about using car amps indoors, but most of them seem to recommend using a ATX computer power supply, or bringing a battery inside to power the amp.

I've already got a power inverter that can handle the wattage I'm hoping to push (this one), so I was wondering how to hook it all up?

I've got a positive and negative terminal on the power supply, so I can easily get power to the amp (just connect it to the positive terminal, right?), but what should I use to ground the amp to, and how do I trigger the remote sensor?

Much appreciative!

connect the positive to the + terminal and to the remote as well (use a short wire to connect the + to Remote) and the - to the - on the amp.

Thanks Ben.

Connect the ground on the amp to the negative on the power supply?

The remote hooks up to the positive terminal on the power supply because it delivers a constant current, and I don't have to worry about the life of a battery? It'll constantly be on, so long as the power supply is on, right?

Thanks again.
