    You'll need a big power supply,but probably be cheaper if you just bought a Home receiver.

    Don't waste your time with power supplies and amplifiers designed for vehicle use. Most efficient route is just do it right from the start and buy a plate amplifier (amplifiers designed to run off 110V AC) like these
    Bash 300S Digital Subwoofer Plate Amplifier 300W RMS
    Bash 500S Digital Subwoofer Plate Amplifier 500W RMS

    Also, 500w in a house will be much louder than 500w in a vehicle, there's no road/engine noise to overcome so don't think that's too little power. I hooked a single 10" to a 100w plate amp in my living room and it got loud enough to annoy my neighbors.

    Also make sure your amperage rating for your fuse in your fuse box can handle the extra current draw from the outlets you will be using. I've worked with 240 volts for home theaters before and it was really unnecessary. So if you really want to go that route, look for lots of money to be spent. But if you can't make your system loud on 110, you're probably doing something wrong.
