    dc - ac power inverter

    Hey all,
    what's the best DC - AC power inverter and where can I buy it?
    I've heard that some DC -AC inverters will cause noise and flicker. My other question would be if I get an inverter with noise would I be able to connect an ITPS regulator to regulate the voltage? I'm understanding that the reving or the change in voltage cause noise... Not sure if I'm correct.

    and yes I did ...

    Thanks

    "Input voltage range 10-15 VDC"

    cranking brings the car down to 7-10 volts, normally, so if you want to be able to survive crank, and your ITPS can handle it, sure.

    or you can search for tank circuits here to keep the voltage up during crank
