    Sounds like a great idea to me! I also appreciate install galleries of a car audio systems to help give others ideas, or just show off a sweet car!

    Aww, thanks for pointing me out! :o :D

    I think it's a great idea!! Everytime somebody mentions something about a car I instantly derail the whole thread asking questions about it. A general auto forum would be just the perfect place for such stuff. I could live in a car forum.

    Bring it on!

    Justin! You listening??

    I agree, I would love to have a general automotive forum here. I just don't feel comfortable going into other car forums not knowing anything about cars/asking dumb questions/etc.

    I'm thinking this is in the wrong forum, but....

    I think you need to power supply which you can power the radio with. Here in the states we can get a 12vdc power supply that we can plug into 120vac 60hz. I would think you could buy something like that for 240vac in Australia. The current is important you will need 5 amps or better don't try it with anything smaller. I'm cautioning you on using a car battery charger as these are very dirty and not very accurate as to output voltage. Read will hurt radio and or cause you audio issues.

    On second thought this should be moved IMHO
