Yeah, it can be done. Instead of the booster being 12 volt, you'll be using a 120 volt booster. Won't make a difference on output of booster, 4 amp and up, whether it's 12 volt or 120 volt power input, you'll just be using more power from your car battery. Be sure you've a good charging system.

Car will start then shortly after it will only start with a boost

You should not be boosting what may be a dead battery

That is an unsafe practice

Have battery tested & or replaced,then remove inspect
& clean both ends of cables

If it just clicks then with new battery you have a bad starter

Fuse apx200m

If the fuse is blowing of then there is problem with the inverter stage of amplifier. There is an inverter stage in the amplifier to boost the 12V to + or - 30 to 40V normally. Its a switching circuit normally uses Mosfets and ferrite core transformer and a driving IC. If the mosfet is shot then the fuse will blow off immediately after power is connected.

Check on thing remove the REM connection and then connect the power. If the fuse blows the there is fault with the Mosfet Its short.
If the fuse blows only when you connect the REM then the amplifier stage is faulty.

Also check by disconnecting the speakers. if any of the speaker is faulty then there is a chance for fuse blow off.

With 13.3 volts dc input only putting out 94 volts ac

There may be a regulator that boosts the voltage when the inverter is in use. you might check in line voltage while in use and see what you get. Operating amperage should be around 10amps.
good luck and feel free to reply and vote. Joe

84 corvette wont start without battery boost.... brand new battery installed & no change , the radio, horn , etc is good the car just wont start with a boost

It might be the starter, if it gets too much use the armature might be too weak and need extra Amps to get it to work right.

Flat battery only done 10000 kms nothing left on it wont take charge completely dead cannot get same battery n70zz is closest but it is only 670 amps not 800 amps

The 670 amps will work, but will probably not last very long. It wont hurt anything except the battery itself. Make sure the cables polarity is connected right. A note on how to boost a car safely: ALWAYS START THE CAR FIRST THAT IS DOING THE BOOSTING. This ensure no computer damage will result on either car. Good luck.

Bass boost/Gain

Both the bass boost and the gain generally do the same thing, except the bass boost is essentially "additional gain" at a particular frequency (in this case, 45Hz). I would suggest lowering the bass boost (10?) and adjust the gain. Honestly, you may have to play around with both settings until you find a happy medium. There is going to be a maximum the amp can provide no matter how you get there. Hope that helps!
