You'll require a 12V high current power supply (if your car battery is of 12V). A computer SMPS would be best to use.

i thought SMPS are not good for amp, that you need VERY high value caps for filternig and for having some energy stored because the amp has a vrery fast change in current.

Ni, I think SMPS are better than transformer PS for amps. They can supply transient currents required by amp. But for good undistorted sound quality a small bank of caps. is always required. My friend has a 50W+50W amp. which runs on SMPS with a small bank of 10,000uF.
