Anybody know of cheap inverter that will do between 1000 and 2000 watts continuous power?

I need something beefy in case i need to be a mobile wood shop.

Something slim would be nice as well. Also if it has a remote turn on that would be amazing!

I wont spend over $200 i think i should be able to get what i want for that price.

Heres a link to one im looking at but its 2.75" thick and idk if it will fit in my dash. and it does not have a remote turn on.

why does it need to go in your dash though? any inverter 1000w and above is going to be the size of a 1000w amplifier, you do know they need direct wired to the battery right?

Yea i know i plan to run 4 ga wire since i have a bunch of extra. i want it in my dash cuz i have a hole where my factory disc changer used to be and it would be sick to have outlets in the dash.

I guess if it has remote turn on then i wouldn't need it in the dash tho i could just run extension cords under the carpet and mount the inverter in the trunk or under the seat.

I just cant be needing to remember to turn the thing on and off all the time if its under my seat or in my trunk that would be a royal PITA not to mention i will likely kill my batts.
