    You need either a 12 volt power supply or a car battery and a charger to charge the battery when it's dead. Then just connect positive to positve and so on.

    This is true. But most home stereo speakers are 8ohm which won't harm a car amplifier at all. The only thing that will happen is you won't get as much power from the amplifier. You also might want to make sure the speakers can handle the power.
