    what is it lately with people throwing systems in their cars that are way over powered, way too big, and amssive power hogs.

    there's a much more efficient way to approach all this.

    oi ... I need to pack it in for the night.

    system was free. and the site i searched for power invertors for said to get 10-20% over what you need. its ok though, im not going to put it in my car.

    Well, a lot of invertor ratings are for peak power, and not continuous power output... I didn't read the thread really close, so he MIGHT have a system that pulls that much, but I really can't picture that. Sometimes, for a system that pulls 150 watts, you would actually want to buy a 350 or 400 watt invertor, just to be safe and have some over head. Besides, it's not like it's going to use the power it's rated at unless it needs it anyway, so might as well buy as highly rated invertor that you can.
