No, that won't work. The device in the pic says it's output is AC (alternating current). You'll need a power supply with DC output (direct current). You might be able to find a suitable power supply at Radio Shack, or as you mentioned, computer power supplies usually have a 12V DC output. You just need to ensure the power supply you use will handle the required current of the head unit. And it would be a good idea to wire in a fuse between the power supply and the head unit for safety reasons.
