Default Power Supply

Can a PC power supply be used to power a DIY car amplifier ?

If so, how can I do this ?

THANKS !

Are you wanting to use the PC supply to power to the amp while in the car, or as a test bench supply?

Nope, they require an AC input voltage.

Better to cut one out of an old amp.
