How to convert the audio equipment of a car into home equipment

The biggest obstacle to using your car’s audio equipment at home is feeding. Not the output power of the car’s equipment, as these often have impressive output power for the speakers, despite their relatively small size. The power in question is for the input. Home audio systems use the power from our wall sockets, that is, 120 volts of alternating current (AC), but the audio equipment of the cars is designed to operate at 12 volts of direct current (DC). However, with the use of a power converter you can use audio equipment from a car in your house.

Step 1

Cut a piece of black wire and one of red wire. Each one should be long enough to connect the audio equipment of your car to the power converter. Remember that it must be near a plug so you can connect it.

Step 2

Remove 1/2 inch (1.2 cm) of insulation from the ends of each of the two wires with a wire stripper.

Step 3

Loosen the terminal marked “+” on the power converter with a Phillips screwdriver. Insert the bare end of the red wire into the opening of the terminal and tighten it with a screwdriver to hold the wire.

Step 4

Loosen the terminal marked “-” on the power converter with a Phillips screwdriver. Insert the bare end of the black wire into the terminal opening and adjust with a screwdriver to hold it.

Step 5

Remove 1/2 inch (1.2 cm) of insulation from the ends of the red and yellow wires connected to the back of your car’s audio equipment. Cross the ends of the red and yellow wires. Screw these cables together with the other end of the red wire connected to the power converter. Apply the soldering iron on the joint and use the solder to cover it when the wires are hot. Allow the cables to cool and wrap the welded joint with electrical tape.

Step 6

Remove 1/2 inch (1.2 cm) of insulation from the end of the black wire connected to the back of the audio equipment. Cross this cable together with the other end of the black wire connected to the power converter. Place the soldering iron in the joint and use the solder on it when the wires are hot to cover it. Allow the cables to cool and wrap the welded joint with electrical tape.

Step 7

Connect the power converter to the wall and turn on the power switch of the converter. Turn on the audio equipment switch to use it.
