    Default Crazy idea

    I had this crazy idea to utilise an old radio and some speakers by making a small portable radio, it also has iPod connectivity.


    Ok so I have a 5amp 12vdc psu, would this be ok to power the radio?

    I have a yellow wire which I think is battery, red which I think is ignition and black which is ground.

    I was thinking of connecting the 12v from the psu to the red and 0v to the black, should that work as it doesn't?

    The radio is a Sony MEX-BT2600

    Appreciate any help

    Forgot to update, thanks for that I managed to work it out in the end, I was initially tempted to put a battery and charger in there but didn't bother.

    I now have a portable stereo with an output of 104w which streams music via Bluetooth, best bit it didn't cost anything to make I had everything around the house
