Re: Subs connect to Computer power supply
I've done this for years. @globalminds_ent ; using a HT receiver is a better option for efficiency and sound but he would also need a designated plate amplifier to power the subs and I feel that the real reason behind this idea is price. He is obviously on a tight budget if he is considering a boss amp. lolz Real receivers will cost 100 bucks at the very least and that leaves him with low options and poor specs in the HT world.
@rauber15 ; you can wire a computer PSU (Power Supply Unit) to generate a constant 12v and you can run most car audio amplifiers off of it. You should not plug the speakers and subwoofers into that amp together because they are not meant to play full range. The subs need an amp to push a low frequency signal and the speakers need a separate amp. This is unless you find a 3ch or 5ch amp with a designated subwoofer output.
As for the ipod connection, you will get a simple 3.5mm plug to RCA plug adapter cable. They're about 3 bucks at walmart and you plug the RCA's into the RCA input of the amp.
