    What amp? 800 rms could pull anywhere from 80 to 120 amps

    After rise it won't pull near that much. I run a 25a power supply on a HU and a small class A/B 4 channel amp

    Once you get much past that you'd be better off to buy an amp designed for 120v. A power supply for that isn't going to be cheap

    That's what I've run into. For a PS with that much 12v output you could get a pretty powerful home amp.
