 Hooking up powered Hitachi home stereo subwoofer to car?

I know this can be done, but I'm not quite sure the materials I need to do this. I think I'm going to need an inverter to convert the DC and AC power? The Hitachi subwoofer is: 117v 60Hz 150w In the cars trunk, there's an amplifier in the top right corner and a 12v plug in the bottom right. What do I need to do? Help! (also, I'm new with car electronics, so if those responding could explain the details, that would be very helpful. thanks in advance)

You do NOT put home electronics inside a car! You'll burn a ton of power to get the necessary voltage, then the power will be dissipated by trying to power a low wattage sub.

Despite the power, this is still something I'd like to try... So if someone has the answers, I'd still greatly appreciate it.

home and pro kinda equipment can easily be modded for mobile use......not amps though. usually pre amps and eq's. don't waste your time or money.

Can you tell me how you connected yours? Or how I should go about mine?

Christ all mighty...
You need a power inverter! You can't change the fact that the amplified sub needs 120v. This inverter needs to be large enough to transform the needed power. A cheap walmart inverter may say it supplies the wattage within your range. It won't for long. Any inverter that plugs into a 12v power point won't work. How else besides a inverter can you power a 120v amp?

This was when I literally knew nothing lol. I took a little walmart inverter and powered the philips subwoofer. Then I took one of the rear high outputs off the deck and plugged it into the low input on the subwoofer. Wasn't that bad lol. Super ghetto though.

This question is kind of like asking if you should put your manhood in a running blender. 

Can you do it?  Yes you can.

Should you do it?  Hell no.

Sorry, no can do...I have a disclaimer posted somewhere that I am not responsible for inconsequential damages incurred by food and/or beverage discharged while reading responses from meaningless posts.

And on another note...I doubt food particles are the only residue on your keyboard (fap fap fap...LOL).
