So how is the stock battery recharged, DC/DC? Just wondering as I am currently planning my audio build.
That is, the "stock" DC/DC converter.Yes, the battery is charged using the DC/DC converter.
The stock system with the XS should allow you to "thump" for a short while... but driving the system hard for an extended period would definitely result in a low voltage condition. BTW, low voltage operation is the number one reason for premature amp failure.My range is anywhere between 900 -1400 RMS. I have a XS D3400, which would be my supplemental battery. Please keep me posted on your aftermarket DC/DC adventurers :thumbsup:
Working on other mods at present. I will update this thread when I get back to this topic.Anything new jhren?
IMO not necessary. Just use a typical 12VDC/120VAC inverter, output rated at least equal to the input current rating of the regular AC adapter for the laptop... or check with the laptop manufacturer to see if they have a 12VDC power supply. I have one for my HP (dinosaur at this point), which just plugs into the cigarette lighter (nowadays its called a power outlet ), but the plug can be cut off and hardwired into the system (make sure it's fused... because most units with power outlet plug, the fuse is in the plug).I wonder how hard it would be to make a laptop charger using a similar technique? Or is it even necessary?
