The B1 uses a 18Vdc power supply at the jFETs.
The car has a 12V system that tops out at ~13.8V.
The B1 won't work as designed/intended.

But, it will work. Do you know the levels you need? Headroom may be a problem??? A qusi isolated system w/2 battreys system would solve most of the problems. And, if you built it hefty enough, can paower a PRW Amp too!
"It was the perfect high end audio product: Exotic, inefficient, expensive, unavailable, and toxic." N.P.

Maybe you could use a charge pump circuit.
