    So I used to have a car, and in that car I had a 12" sub and an amp to power it. Now at school, I no longer have a car, but I've still got the equipment from before. I wanna run the sub in my home theater system, and know I need a convertor from 120AC to 12DC, but my question is, how many amps to I need to power such a set up? Is 3 reasonable? If not, what should I need? The amp should be putting out about 300 watts.

    Thanks in advance, guys. I'm kinda clueless on this stuff.

    You should be able to hook up the sub directly to your stereo receiver. Your stereo receiver is the amp. You might need a converter for the wiring however. If you go to Radio Shack, they will tell you everything that you will need.
