    12V DC to 15V DC 45watt

    Hello

    I have a Speaker system that i want to put in my car, but it runs on 15 volt(DC), so how do a fabricate a 12 to 15 volt regulator/converter, that can power the 45watt speakers.


    Best regards Morten

    Try looking here.

    They have all sorts of power supply and amp projects. You may have to do some research into a few, and modify them to meet your needs.

    You mean you want to put a PC speaker set in your car, and it runs on 15 volts. Why are you trying to convert 12 to 15. Just get an inverter, or find a speaker set that operates below 12 volts. Dropping voltage is MUCH easier then increasing it.

    Also, not sure if you have seen it, but do a search on the forums for PC speakers in cars, and you will see that NO ONE thinks it is a good idea. But, do what you want.

    The DSX12V can do that for you.

    According to their website, that's just a 12v regulator, that does NOT put out the 15V he's asking for.

    Thats MY website and I SAY I can make it put out 15 volts with a simple mod. I've tested it up to 16 volts on the output with 8-24 on the input.

    Thanks for the info Jeff. Perhaps you could update your website to reflect that.

    Can't just point to a website saying 'This can do that' if the website doesn't say it too!

    But that does sound like a fairly simple solution to the poster's needs.

    Your right, I should have posted this:

    The DSX12V has a build option to allow other output voltages. It is undocumented, but I bet if you ask the builder (me) to build a custom version for you in exchange for the normal price and some pictures and a commentary of what your doing, he would be glad to build one that puts out 15 volts DC at ~8 amps max. There however is not yet enough demand to make this a product category of it's own..
