Solar Circuit Question Answered

Hey everyone, first post here. I am a novice at electronics. I am putting together a solar powered boombox. I have a 30w panel, a 10A charge controller, and a 7Ah SLA battery. I will be using this to run a 12v Lepai amp. Do I need something in my circuit that disconnects the amp when the battery drops below a certain level? I have read the if a SLA battery is completely depleted it will be ruined, is this true? My charge controller only has a spot for solar in and battery out. Should I exchange it for one with a spot to hook the load?

How many watts is the boom box?

IE the power draw of the amp.
