    yup it's possible

    oh yeah that can be done all you need is a power supply that can get you 12 v you just need to twist the remote cable to the power cable and hook it up and it will work great

    Why would you need to do that???!! It can be done with an ac/dc converter or a battery charger, but that leads me to my first question! Why???

    That's easy

    That's one of the most basic things ever to do it's just like in a car cept hteres no seats and stuff to get i the way.
    iv'e got an old sound board from my local car stereo shop and i've put lots of used acr sound gear in it. i put it in a semi sound proof room and it measures close to the 135 Db mark with the 4 12" subs playing with 1 yes one pair of alpine r series 51/4" splits to supply the tunes and it sounds awesome!

    Depending on how much power you want to run, you can use a power supply like the ones Kepco makes:

    or get a 110 volt amp worthy of your high power subs:

    i dunno if this would be cheaper but i paid around 40 dollars for a car battery charger and it worked great. all i did was connected the red wire to the power wire and the black wire the the ground wire. then i got the remote wire and put it into the power terminal.

    Great as long as your amp doesn't need more than 2A. A dedicated power supply as mentioned by maylar is the way to do it properly.
