This will power an 90w opus:
I'm gonna be building my system in a aluminum briefcase(same case different seller) and for times when I take it out of my car I was thinking about getting a AC-DC converter. My question is this; would a convertor like this produce enough amperage to run a system? I'm thinking not (90W/12V=7.5A>1), but maybe I'm something isn't clicking. Anyways that was the biggest one I saw on radioshack.com. Will it work anyways since I'm calculating with peak power not actual draw? Does anyone know another source that has adapters putting out more current?
If I can find one that works I will ditch whatever connector is on the adapter and replace it with a 4pin cb mic plug and connect the male version to the opus. On the connector side I'll short the pins going to the 12v and ign on the opus. I chose this connector over say a 3pin connector because the cb mic plug screws onto the jack.

My next generation Front End is right on schedule.
It will be done sometime in the next generation.

I am for hire!
Thanks for the replies, guys.
Just fyi, I use a standard ATX PSU and hook in the 12 volts straight to the opus and it works like a charm. just in case you have a spare one lurking around.
