    I have an old car sub that I would like to use in the garage. Has a car amp. What is a cheap way to get power from ac wall unit to dc car amp.

    A common battery charger is the cheapest way, but probably not the best way. They don’t really have clean DC, so expect some hum in the sub.

    Also, don't expect to get the as much power from the amp as you would in a car, since available amperage is lower.

    also try adding a battery to it a optima gell cell they are deep cycle and would work beter than the charger alone. but now you can buy a plate amp at that price.
