My transformer died in one of my bx5a's. I wanted to use these amps as a platform to build an ipoe rock anyway. I have a few questions.

A:

Why can't I even power the monitors with either an apc battery or my Xbox psu I modded, my old computer psu, or any other transformer I try, like my x540 transformer? Ilwhen the bx5a transformer worked, the others still wouldn't, no fuse is blow, I ripped out the other bx5a transformer and it powers the broken studio monitor just fine. Why does no other transformer, battery, or power supply work, even if it is 16v @ 5a, an apc battery, or Xbox psu should work fine right? They all power my car amps and my Logitech x540, so what's the deal? Can this amp possibly run on AC, not dc?

Second: if I can get the amp powered, how would I run it on a rechargeable battery capable of 50+ Watts for over an hour, how would I charge up a trickle charge system as well as make an AC adapter for it to play continuously?

Lastly, is there a way to delete the acive crossover and make it straight amplification? I'd like to use my Gallo nucleus as my iPod speaker drivers and make it look fancy and be super efficient, small, and sound great that way. Gallo nucleus is a 3 inch true audiophile quality speaker that Bose wish they could be. This option would lack bass somewhat, but it would be super small and elegant. If I can't take out The crossover, ill just use my 5 inch Kevlar drivers and buy new silk domes and build it out of birch with a fiberglass panel.
