Soundworks + 12V Adaptor
I've been lurking on this forum for months now and have managed to restrain the urge to post anything so far, having seen some of the flames for not using the search button...
At the minute I'm only starting out my build and my car has no head unit or speakers and I know bugger all about car speakers and amps so....
I've noticed that Cambridge Soundworks have a 12V cigarette lighter adapter and I've read on another post that the FPS2000 speakers take 12V...
What do you think about using this setup in the car?
Obviously I'd hide the speaker away so that it's not obvious that I'm using them....

Here's the 12V Adapter....
Just need to make 100% sure the speakers take 12V input.
I would be concerned about what noise might be brought into the system when the car is running. It's so cheap it probably doesn't filter much. No harm in trying it though.
I use an Altec Lansing ACS 54 system in my car. I power both the speaker system and the computer from a 600w inverter. I think it's great, so I recommend you at least try it. Here's a link to my setup:

So a cigarette adapter will probably burn up because they usually can't handle that kind of load.
