    What about the amps coming from the Opus90W?
    It's my understanding that DC powered devices pull only the amount of amps that it needs. If your PS doesn't put out enough, it won't work. But if you go over the required amps, it shouldn't be a problem.

    Anyone else agree with this? Too many amps won't fry it?
    I don't doubt you Tidder, just like to hear more on that.

    Heh, PolkAudio agrees with me.
    " 'A' is for amperes, a measure of electric current. How much is enough? We like to say that having too much amperage is like having too much money."

    http://www.polkaudio.com/car/faqad/a...ticle=glossary

    Only time you need to worry about too much amperage, I guess is when you're trying to grow Marijuana.

    Google search found "cultivating marijuana". Here's an excerpt.
    "...too much amperage may damage cells and or stunt growth..."

    Just go to radio shack and purchase this

    Then just solder the wires coming from whatever your going to power the camera with and you'll be set.

    Edit: just make sure you are getting center positve from that new connector before you plug it in.

    Right, you can probably get one at Walmart for 10 bucks. Strip the wires on the power suply, hook up the voltmeter and plug in the powersupply. The voltmeter will read "-12.00" or "12.00". When the positive lead (red) of the voltmeter is on the positive of the PSU it will read "12.00", if it is reversed it will read "-12.00"


    Then you'll know which one is the positive lead, get to barrel plug, hook up that posive lead to the center pole, and the negative wire the ground pole.

    Got the new camera today... Wow is this seller quick. I contacted him Saturday and I got a new one today.. Unreal...

    Plugged it into a 12V DC adapter I have and it worked. I didn't have time to really check out the quality and what not but I will say this..

    I don't think it will look that good in dark situations. It was very grainy in low light.. I think it will do just fine though..

    Now, I have to think of two things.

    1. Where to mount it (I have a truck so I can't put it in a keyhole of a trunk).
    2. How to run the RCA cable to my Lilli (again since I have a truck I will have to run the wire all outside and find a way to get it inside).

    Ideas for each of these would be great..
