The specifics of my situation are vast, even aside from having just moved to a new city. Selling what I amassed during better times has already occurred, as vehicle specific audio equipment isn’t much needed when the vehicle in question no longer runs. That, also, was mentioned in my original post.
I typed all that for a reason.... hoping to narrow the confines of the query, and avoid a lot of senseless chatter that wouldn’t be feasible anyway. The question, as stated, was whether or not a 220v household outlet, while being rated for 20amps (equivalent to 4400watts)....would safely carry 12v at a maximum of perhaps 2400watts.
As for working.... you don’t know my schedule. My field of work. My history. And most certainly are not qualified, nor invited, to give unsolicited advice on life.....especially after I’ve seen the electrical advice I’ve seen already given.
Further research, and a few phones calls for assurance, informs me that I WAS correct. I should have no problems, whatsoever, as long as I stay within the limits I outlined.
If we all could afford to not Macgyver something every so often, there would be no need for this forum....we’d all just have a pro do it. So, that being said, these types of questions and their unique solutions should (theoretically) be encouraged, and shooting down an idea in favor of an expensive part the person obviously can’t afford is contrary to everything his site stands for.
But hey, several of you should check out Sonic Electronix. I hear they’re hiring reps. You’d be shoe-ins!
Now ‘scuse me....I must go -ironically- to work.
