Where can I find an amplifier for this portable sound system? Answered
I am working on creating a waterproof sound system to bring to college. I have already created a 3-d model on Google Sketchup and I have two waterproof full range speakers and one 8 inch woofer. I want it battery powered and would either use a lead acid battery or try to salvage enough Lithium Ion cells from old computer batteries to power it for a long enough period of time. The question though is where to find an inexpensive amplifier that will run on 12 volts, is small, and has decent bass. Does anyone know of some websites on which I could find an amplifier? In the past I have bought desktop systems and converted them to battery power (on the rare occasion that they actually run on 12v dc after the transformer and rectifier), so I know it is possible.
It seems I forgot to include the specifications of the speakers! Anyway, here they are:
