Electric Powered Sound System with a Car Stereo
Background: Adam, a Other from Culver City, CA 90230
[ad#block]Question: Hello,

I’ve made a bicycle sound system that is power by a 12V DC 35AH battery. It’s basically, a car stereo powered directly by the battery.

I’m interested in adding a wireless microphone setup to system, but am not sure of the power situation. I have a wireless unit with specs of “Power Supply: External DC Power Supply, 0.7A, 12-15V DC”

My question is, would I be able to hook up the wireless setup directly to the battery? That is, could I splice the wires on the wireless’ adapter and attach to the battery.

Would it be okay to have both the car stereo and wireless mic units attached to the battery in parallel?

Dave’s Reply:
Thanks for your electrical question Adam. The power supply and or battery must match the stated power requirements for all the intended devices you would like to power.
