Trying to hook up a Lepai LP168HA to my car
Hi, how are you all?
Im trying to hook up a Lepai LP168HA to my car. First i tryed to use the voltage cable of the dash radio, the red power light is on but no sound at all, then i tryed to use a 12v 2A lighter adapter and it worked, red light plus sound. But the thing is that i need the lighter socket and i want to connect the lepai amp to the voltage of the car or battery. So i decided to buy a voltage regulator and the same thing happened, red light on but no sound at all. The volt regulator gives me 11.6v using a multimeter, with the car on and off. So i dont understand whats happening. Why does it work with the lighter adapter?

You are maybe getting too much voltage drop on the wiring except for the lighter socket which will supply a few amps. And the amp is refusing to start.
Try it from straight across the battery to prove the point.
