    ya diodes are an awful idea. they should remove that from their site. even a drop in voltage can damage your setup.

    You want exactly 12v...not somewhere less than 13v.

    A regulator should bump up the voltage to 12 (within reason) and always lower to 12v.

    Will a standard inverter eliminate the need for a regualator? I have been reading around, and haven't gotten a clear answer. Thanks.

    I use a regular inverter and regular power supply, and it works fine, the only reason I would ever want to change, is to clean things up a bit, right now it looks a little cluttered.
