    I had a friend who did this with an old ATX power supply and it turned out great. I can't really remember how he did it, but yes it is possible.

    totally possible, but i doubt its worth it.
    you'll need to hack multiple PC psu to get enough power to run that kind of subs and speakers. You'll see it'll cost a lot to power those amps and its not worth it.

    You need hundreds of Amps at 12-15V. Search the costs.


    Domestic systems aren't silly enough to use low-Ohmage speakers.
    And even domestics are power limited - eg, standard wall sockets in Aus & England are 10A & 13A @ 230V = 2300W and 2990W max.

    been there done that... if you have the parts and power supplies laying around, it is a interesting little project when you've got nothing better to do, but the reality is that you can build a way better/cheaper setup out of true house-voltage equipment..

    why is this in the suggestions/comments area?
