    If anyone knows...

    I was wondering if I could run some sort of Ac to Dc power converter and run car audio equipment off it. I have a Dc power converter that can put out 100 amps and 13.8 V and I just want to run a small car audio sub amp (it has two 30 amp fuses on it). I also have an amp that has 4 25 amp fuses on it so Im not sure which I would go with If I were to go through with it.

    Would this be bad for the amps or the power converter? Also would I need some sort of car battery in between the amp and converter? I understand that I could just buy a plate amplifier to run my sub but I'm trying to avoid spending the extra money right now. Any help would be great!

    so do you have the battery? hope its sealed. seriously quit being cheap and lazy and just spend the $50-125 on a nice plate amp from parts express. it'll be so much easier and look so much better.

    I don't appreciate being called cheap and lazy.. Insults help no one. I just wanted to know if it could be done safely so I could have a little project to mess with.
