    Hey guys! I'm going away soon and I want to take my bass and amp along with me however the voltage supply from the boat I'm staying on is only 12 volts. Will this be enough to power my 15 watt amp?

    Thanks a lot
    Matt

    If your 15W amp takes 12VDC, you have to compare how much it needs vs how much you've got (and if it's batteries - for how long...)

    If it's an invertor, it better be a good one or it'll probably be noisy. And it still comes back to "how much 12V you got"? (in Ah).

    Providing the make and model of your amp would help.
