Hello everybody, I had an amplifier together with 2 speakers and subwoofer built into my car, I got rid of the old car so now I have this system left in my living room. I want to make use as a home theater system.
So the amplifier Boschmann XR888
I already have a PSU of a pc I had rated at 480W
It has 2 +12v Rails, one 15A and the other 16A
Anyway I can power the amplifier with this PSU?
If you tied the two rails together to avoid tripping their individual over-current protection (not recommended) and the PSU can work properly without load on its 3.3V and 5V outputs, it will most likely work.
If you use only one of the 12V rails, you will most likely trip the over-current protection at less than 200W total peak output power.
