  • power supply question?

    I was thinking of getting this power supply...

    http://www.mini-box.com/s.nl/sc.8/ca...it.A/id.300/.f

    But how do i wire it up because its got a weird plug at the end of the power cable. Its got some plug in system...the reason im asking is because I up graded from the 90 W power supply which had a power, ground, and remote wire which was easily integrated into my after market audio system...What do I need to do to make this power supply wire into the system in a similar manner...

    I appreciate any advice....

      Don't go for that PSU. The 12V supply on those is not regulated and therefore not ideal for in car use.

      If you need more power than 90W, the only real alternative is the OPUS 150W.

        That's a male (or is it female?) connector that the non-AC end of a wall wart (read: DC power supply that you plug into a wall; looks like a black "wart," hence the name.) Trust me, you've seen hundreds, if not thousands, of those things - most likely use one to charge your cell phone, power a USB hub, etc. in your house.

        The PSU you're looking at *expects* regulated 12v in, hence the use of that connector (and many many posts on this board about it).
