    Oh my god, that's freakin' huge. Please don't use a font size that large any more. Your post looks like a billboard.

    You want to use a Carnetx P1900 or P2140 unit for DC-DC power. You can order it from the mp3car.com store, and they will ship it anywhere.

    You can certainly use a DC-DC invertwer, but this is inefficient and poses other potential problems like heat, noise in the audio system and a big bulky inverter that you have to put somewhere.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Calm down on the font size man!

    DC-DC is the most effeicient way to go about it, but an inverter can be made to work fine. I'm using an inverter currently, but it's a true sine wave inverter. Works great, no issues. Good clean sound. But I already had one in the car to run my Mom's medical equipment when she's with me..........

    What do you mean DC-DC is not available in your country? They aren't rocket launchers or considered munitions or anything. I'm sure you can get an M2-ATX, Opus or Carnetix shipped to you.

    As for DC-AC, a true sine wave inverter would be your best bet, but probably more expensive.

    P.S. Try holding the font size down.

    1 - Don't post in such a large font.
    2 - Don't expect that someone is going to be visiting these forums and can answer your question within a short four hour timeframe.
    3 - You posted this elsewhere on these forums. That makes this a crosspost. Don't do that again. I've merged your two threads.

    I don't think 150 watt will be big enough. You probably do not want to go over 80% of the rated capacity. How big is the power supply in the PC?
