    guitar amp in car

    hi there.

    has anyone installed a guitar (or bass guitar) in your car?

    is it possible?

    comments are welcome.

    greetings, Nacho

    It is possible.... Best way would be to power it via an inverter if you don't want to mess with your amp's internal PSU....

    But personally, if you want to use a guitar in your car, I'd buy a line6 guitarport or something, you can wire via your car-pc.

    you can buy an adapter to go from 1/4 in to RCA so just do that and put it on the Aux on your HU.
    Cant code cause I dont know how, but give me the paint bucket and my eraser and have at you!

    Quickest way to do it without even needing an amp but still giving you tons of different good sounds to play with is the StealthPlug:

    (Assuming you have a Car PC)

    so wait a second....you're wanting to use a guitar amp in place of a regular car audio amp?

    why?

    just spend the money on an amp for the car.

    What...DJ speakers in the car?

    I believe that's what they did in the 70's when there was no car audio gear. Sell it and buy a car audio amp. It will save you many headaches...

    I have a line6 toneport that I use in the house. I am considering adding it to the carpc. I am not sure how it would sound throught the car speakes but my guess is that it would be pretty cool!!
