... car audio wouldnt be the most optimum setup for a home stereo, however a good plate amp will do you wonders. id suggest building a larger box. house dont have the same natural gains that a car does.

please, hook up a battery in your house and blow your house you worthless/hopeless pos.

spend 50 bucks on a set of computer speakers with a subwoofer. it will sound 1000000000 times better than anything your gonna do because they were designed by people who know what the fvck they are doing.

If you are really stuck on using your equipment, pick up a cheap/used receiver to power your 6x9s, and an additional amp to power the subs. You can get a used PA amp for < $100. Run the audio output from your computer to the receiver's input. Then use the receiver's sub out to connect to the sub's amp.

Make sure that you wire the subs to a stable impedance that the amp can handle ~ 8 ohms. I wouldn't take much power to get 4 subs loud in a house.

Try not to catch your house on fire

The best way to hook this up is find a good car battery....you can pick up a used one at an auto salvage yard for 10-20$ if you don't have one laying around ...then wire all your car audio up to it like wiring to a car....you'll want to keep the battery charged so after hooking it up take an old electrical cord...and strip back both of the spare ends and hook them up to the battery...plug the plugged end into the wall to keep your battery fully charged....you won't have to worry about which end is pos or neg like in a car because it will be AC voltage so either side will work...:) I hope this helps to get your system rocking.....:peace:

You really shouldn't do stuff like this, we may think it's funny but he may think your serious and try it which could very well result in him getting seriously hurt.

To the op, as it has been suggested, get a home theater receiver, that will allow you to bring in your source signals and power your 6x9's, then get a plate amp for the subs.

OP, I'll buy all your subs for $50 shipped.
