Mods : Apologies if some existing thread is there for this. Did a look up but couldn't find any. Please merge, in case. Prelude : Excited of seeing all the DIY stuff over net, I thought of using a car CD receiver at home which was lying unused for sometime. Now: To get that done, I started searching to find some info on 12V DC supply required for powering the receiver. I believe current rating is also a key factor in powering the receiver and my search didn't yield any results on that. Mine is a JVC unit and the manual don't give any idea about the current rating of that piece. Can experts please guide me in deciding the current rating of Wall Adapters with 12V DC output. I saw some videos which use old SMPS to power the receivers. I am not a big fan of clumsy setup with loose ends, that's why this post . help.. help.. Cheers.
