Ive seen 120 to 12v
inverters, but I also read something about using an old computer power cable...? Anyone heard or done such a thing? I have 4 rockford speakers and a JBL subwoofer sitting in my attic, I could find a decent aftermarket head unit for under 100 im sure and an cheap amp off craigslist probobly also..
Thought it would look cool mounted in the wall next to the garage door openers and the thermostat
Sounds like the setup for our pool room. I bought a cheap SONY head unit that had MP3 and USB capability (~ $80) and used a leftover 12v DC power brick for juice. Ran wires through the walls to outdoor speakers and now have good sounds for swimming!
