could i use a car amp with a pair of speakers? they seem to be much cheaper..
Yes but you will need a power source for the amp.
one time i tried plugin the amp into the wall...by gettin a plug socket and cable and solderin the power cable ends to the power part of the amp...i turned it on and it blew up..i nearly killed myself..my flat went all dark cos all the power switches went off
what a tit
what's the safe way to power it?
man your fucking lucky..... your household electric is 240v.... more than enough to kill you
get a 240 - 12v convertor. would need to be able 2 handle quite a bit of current.
Or just use a car battery and link the remote and 12v terminals on the amp. will drain it tho
where can i get one of those? are they expensive?
duno, could try using a comp power supply. should work
That's a cowboy way of doing things. What's your budget? Amps can be had for cheap
what about a car sub woofer
Lmao you legend
You could just buy a regular amp?.. lol
to my pc av got a car amp hooked up to a 1000w vibe fli sub and some toshiba surround sound speakers from a tv. you can get some serious bass out of that but all in all its no good as monitors because its bass heavy....
you need to connect the amp to the on/off switch to your stereo, otherwise the amp wont turn on...just a word of warning just in case you didnt know...normally its a thin blue cable that connects from the amp to the stereo, im not sure a mixer has one or stereo to be honest..?
just a thought?
i'm looking for as much power as i can get for around £250, set up for parties
go talk to a car audio shop. they got them boards set up with all the head units and speakers built into them, i dont know if they have them running off a car battery in store, could be worth a look
no they will have a convertor. the convertor will probably blow most of ur budget.
as for the remote turn on lead, link the terminal on the amp to the 12v terminal on the amp. and when your not using it, take the cable out.
hmm, i found a 1k amp which i might buy, get ready for another thread!
for a setup for parties you want a proper power amp mate..... im not sure how well a party would turn out after the amp goes and you dont know how to fix it
search the net.... you get loadsa power amps for under £250
i'm going to get the gemini gna 1000 i think..
