Question High end power amp on 12v battery

I would like to take some speakers with me for my battery powered rig

Do you know of a high quality amp on 12v DC? Preferably with low power consumption of course. 30w should do the trick.

Kind regards

You will never regret entering the Class D amplification!


If you like it, your next step could be a Virtue, you can read the review here.

TNT-Audio is an audiophile web site, but it accepts no advertising even if they have a lot of traffic, they are pretty serious and price concious: they don't recomend 5000$/foot cables!!!

even small monitors are going to need more than 6w behind them

I have been listening to music with less than 10W amps for nearly ten years*, my speakers are under 90dB/W and I have regular ears, not hypersensible!!!

If your speakers are 85dB/W (that would be on the low side), you can produce 85dB with just one watt. Do you need much more than that??

I will always remember the first time I heard a Marshall guitar tube amp which was 50W against another 100W transistor watt amp. The tube amp sounded 100x louder. We don't listen to watts, we listen to decibels!!!

*OK, I confess I added lately an active sub-woofer to have bass move my pants when listening music that contains the lyrics "yeah baby"!!!!
