Boombox made with car audio equipment
Hey, this is my first post in the forum... hope I am in the right place with this.
Anyways, I recently found a box of car audio stuff from my dad's old boat and I had an idea for repurposing the gear instead of throwing it away. Essentially, I want to see if I can make a boombox that I can plug into a wall. What I found in the box are two Rockford Fosgate hpc-1257's, a precision power a200 amp, and a pioneer deh-x3600ui head unit, and a cap(which I dont think I will be using).
So far what I have found out is that I need to have a dc charger that powers a battery and then hook up the head unit to the battery.
Here are my questions that I'm hoping you guys can help me work out:
1. What sort of charger do I need to charge the battery?
2. What capacity battery will I need(I was thinking a motorcycle battery would be perfect)?
3. How can I best use the amp in this system?
4. and lastly, am I missing something that is crucial to making this work?...I know I should probably be adding a sub but I can't really find one for cheap right now. I was checking out this ad on craigslist but I'm not sure if anything is really appropriate for this project. sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/pts/d/boom-for-your-ride/6288399696.html[/url]
It has a pioneer gm-d9601, sound xtreme st-602, kenwood kac-7252, a kicker comp R sub, asi 125 1400 watt(not sure what this is exactly), and a few other miscellaneous speakers.
Thanks in advance for the help.
