Yeah, that's it. I bought one of those amplifiers. Nice little unit.
Uses +-12 volts. I made a relatively high power boom box for my JBR
using a stereo box speaker from a pawn shop, the amp and a pair of
gell cell 12 volt batteries. Works wonderfully. I recharge with a 24
volt electric bicycle charger I had on hand.
