first of all, you can get a nice subwoofer amplifier designed for home use at www.parts-express.com . They have 110 and 250 watt models ranging from $90 to $130. THey are great amps, and are cheaper than most car amps that I know of.
Secondly, car amps run on 12 volt electrical systems. the only way to use one would be to run it off of a battery charger or something like that. Not a good idea. Stick with home audio.
