    sine wave power inverters

    does anyone here use a sine wave power inverter? while looking for a alternative to opus, i found sine wave inverters, they supply power equal to or "cleaner" then that of your home outlet. after some searching i found this one http://www.invertersrus.com/inv300ps.html which is only $129 for a 300 watt/ 1000watt max.

    ya its not much cheaper then a opus, but you could run a good amount of devices off of it.

    as for the turning on and shutting off of your pc, it would be pretty easy to run a switch or to. maybe a pc case power button to the front of your car.

    as for surviving crank, i would guess no..

    for a pc a sine wave inverter isn't necissary, some home audio equiptment would benifit, but a pc power supply will fiter out enough for a reg. inverter...

    no, as long as everything else is properly grounded, the audio should be clean.

    works fine with me..
    have a converter also (220V).
    It consumes more power from your battery but works. I had a problem with the sound (shutting down/startup) sounded really bad. I made a switch to turn on the amps after startup windows.

    It's sure a lot cheaper..

    Before i mention, gets hot in summertime.. really hot. So i made a hole and installed a 12v fan
