    Car Stereo Display Stand

    Hi
    I've started selling car stereos at my shop.
    I was wondering what the best set up for making a display stand is.
    Would using computer power supplies be ok to power the stereos.
    I've built a car computer before so the wiring will be ok.
    Or could I just by some kind of cheap inverter? to save me wiring up
    the power supplies.
    Any advice appreciated
    Thanks

    Are you selling amplifiers too? If so, get a dedicated 12-volt power supply for the amplifierss. The more current (Amps) the power supply is rated at, the better. Although PC power supplies might be ok for powering the radios.You might need several power supplies depending on your set up.
    Use a switching system to power one 'set up' at a time. By set up I mean a radio, an amp an a subwoofer amp. You may also need speaker and audio switches.

    Uh..yeah. Most places will usually use an Optima battery with a 50-60 amp power supply. CircuitCity changed that out with 100amp constant power supplies. Computer power supplies won't put out enough wattage to do any good..

    And..ditto on the other opinions!
