Hey, does anyone know a way that I can wire my personal car amp inside my house. I have an extra Punch 500.2 that I am not using and I figured I could maybe use it in my house.

If anyone can tell me what wires I should use or if it can even be done at all, that will be great. Any information would be nice right now.

Thanks,

Mike

Buy a deep cycle SEALED(non-lead acid) batt(Odyssey dry cells are nice) and connect it to the amp. Have the batt hooked up to a charger. That's probably the easiest, cheapest way. I'd also recommend connecting a voltage gauge to it to monitor the voltage.

Put a toggle switch on the REM so you can turn it on and off with ease.

A power converter is another option, but they can be quite expensive.

Don't use or charge a battery in your house. They vent toxic and explosive gases that you don't want to accumulate in your house. A power supply is really your only option, and for the price of a decent power supply, you could just buy a home receiver with a good bit of power and be done with it.

I edited the post a bit. You don't want to run a lead acid type batt. A sealed batt is what you're going to want to use in the house. And like a suggested, the Odyssey dry cells are very nice //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/smile.gif.1ebc41e1811405b213edfc4622c41e27.gif

So I guess putting a car amp in my house is not worth all the expenses... but would it be louder if I got a good pair of 12s or 15s in a bandpass box ???

Anyone got a price on something good yet cheap that I could get a power supply and subs in a box... hehe I doubt it...

i run my ca1200 in my house and sometimes my j 600.4 but i have a big Astron power supply. It's possible to do but to do it right you need money, i have alot of power supplies because im into ham radio and those radios can pull alot of current and run on 13.8 volts DC

I was browsing parts express. It seemed like around $180 for a 300 watt plate amp. The dimensions are not identical, new amps seem larger by a few inches.

Now you want to know how to do this on your own car? On certain cars that allows you to use head units that are high power, you'll be bridging the front speakers into one mono amp speakers. And...
