Connect Car Audio system to home audio system speakers ?


I own a Sony Home Audio system which has 2 portable Speakers. Due to some reason, the system is not working. It is not repairable also.

Instead of buying a new home audio system, i wanted to the following;

1. Purchase a Car Audio System - without the speakers/woofers
2. I already have the Speakers from the home audio system.

Can i connect these two together?

How to go about it?

Kindly guide me for doing this.

Thanks in Advance.

  1. Hi All,

    Please give some pointers on this.
    If this is not the right forum, then kindly let me know which one is?

  2. What do you mean? You mean get a car receiver and amp and hook it up to your existing speakers..? It would be easier to just get a Home Theater Receiver since they can put out upwards of 80W a channel, compared to a car receiver which puts out like 15W, plus, I wouldn't even know how to hook that up.
  3. Since a car audio system is meant to operate on 12volts dc you would need to buy a large 12v dc power supply to get it working (or use a car battery and charge it when it goes flat). Probably better and cheaper to buy a cheap stereo receiver or something used. Car stereo power ratings are pretty inaccurate so don't assume that the power will be adequate.
