  • If i put this amp in my car am I gonna have problems with the power supply ? My car battery is 14 V. I tried one of these other kit build amps (from jaycar) and found that when i connect it up to car battery sparks flie off the terminal and the amp chips burnt out. In fact the capacitor burst open. I think PaulC is right when he says dont hook these straight up to your 12 V vehicle rail. They must need some sort of protection. Does a normal car stereo have some kind of current limiting protection between the battery and the amp/stereo. I really want this amp but i dont want to pay for it and have it burn out like my last two.

No public wish lists :(
