    You could use that, though it is a a good degree of overkill. Plus is you run it from your inverter, you could cause ground loop noise.

    You could probably get away with one of these.

    Or with the ghettoblaster option, I think they are called boomboxes in the US,

    Something like that, but you could find a cheaper one, just remember it has to have a line-in option, (either RCA or stereo Jack)

    Is there a way to enable "dynamic range compensation" or "night mode" during DVD playback? Some (most?) home Dolby Digital receivers/decoders have this, which basically compresses the dynamic range so that if you're watching a movie with the volume low you can still hear the dialogue without blasting the neigbours awake when a helicopter crashes. Otherwise, try ear-buds combined with over-the-ear hearing protectors. Or get a pair of airforce-surplus headphones and modify them for stereo.

    I entered my mom's car in DB Dragracing; it took less than an hour to load the dual-18" cabinet in the back of the Toyota station wagon, and run a cable from the battery to the amp. I only got 140.1 dB, but that was enough for one point.

    My car's got more than enough sound-deadening material to go around
