is there a safe way to plug your guitar into an automobile's sound system without completely screwing up your gear?
also can an amp of decent size be safely plugged into the cigarette lighter with an adaptor?
I'm wondering because I think it would be fun to play a moving concert.
tell me if there is any possible way- i know these are all a bit of a stretch.

you should be able to plug it into the auxiliary and it would be absolutely fine. Might be a problem with impedance matching but that will basically mean you volume and tone knobs crackle when you adjust them.
MaKing thE possiBlE...

Didn't you ever see that commercial with Slash and I think John Mayer? How are you gonna move the drums, though?

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

my car has a plug in for my ipod. I guess if you get an adapter for that kind of plug then it should work. I'm not sure what it would do though.

Out of curiosity why do you want to know this?

would a car battery have enough to power say a 120 combo amp? or would it just kill the battery?
i guess it would be while driving so the engine would power the alternator but i still wonder.

i think it would depend on the inverter's rating. not sure though.

I think a much more important question is, if you put an amp in the trunk of your car will it ruin the suspension?


Please tell me someone remembers this thread... please...
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

line/recording/headphone out/effect send or out jack from an effect pedal to the aux jack on the car stereo should work. You're gunna need to rig a car battery to power an amp

I don't think it would work. Remember trying to do that in my sound system at home. Had to plug it into the amp first before plugging the amp into the sound system to get it to work, think it's the signal. So if you have like a small amp that would fit inside somewhere then it might work.

Problem is not solved. The battery will die quickly. You can run a power converter from a vehicle if the car / truck is running. Then the alternator will provide the power required.

If the vehicle is off, you'll need a dual battery supply of good quality ( Optima, for example ). The batteries will still die fairly quickly.

Chris, I just realized that you have had the same sig since I joined, I think.

Just do whatever Slash is doing in this video. But...why would you want to plug into your car's sound system?

If you're going to do this, probably the best thing to do would be to buy a small generator core and hook it to the serpentine belt or something. Just running amps off of the car's (or preferably truck's) electrical system would blow fuses all the time.
