  • 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:

            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!!

                      hum, i dont think you can compare a bass guitar amp and speaker to a pc speaker. but well.

                      it looks like this is not the right place for this tread.

                      thx to everyone for your time

                        Actually, the thing is you're in 100% the right place for this thread. And the people that know a thing or three about car audio are telling you that your idea a possibility, but not a very good idea.
                        Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
                        How about the Wiki?

                          yes, I get the idea, but I still feel a little offtopic as the forum is heavylly carputer focused.

                              We mod things here, mostly computers. I don;t know much about guitar amps, but you need to either convert the power supply to DC-DC or buy an invertor that can handle the power consumption of that huge thing you want to put in a small space. No one here said it couldn't be done, we are just saying it might not be a good idea. (The PC speakers thread was another big discussion thread that was just not a good idea and a few people had tried it with bad results). We just don;t wnat history to repeat itself. That's all.
