24 VDC 14.6A 350W Regulated Switching Power Supply
Would I need 2 of these?
would I need (2) of these in parallel for (2) 4 x 100 watt tk2050 amp boards? I'm trying to build a 7.1 amp for my pc. I doubt I'll be running it full blast much since I live in an apartment building but don't wanna try just 1 if it will fry. Either way it's still cheaper than buying a 500va toroid then building the regulator board.
If you were running all 8 channels at full power with a solid sine wave or similar signal, then you would certainly be pushing beyond the limits of this power supply. However, under normal moderate listening conditions, you should be able to power your two boards with only one of this power supply, no problem.

can I use 2 of these in series to get a 48VDC supply?
This would probably work. This power supply is a switching power supply, and in general switching power supplies can usually be connected in series. But, I've never used this particular power supply, so I can't say anything for sure.If you do decide to try it then one VERY important thing to make sure of before connecting them in series is to remove the ground prong from the plug of the supply that is supplying the upper voltage range. If you don't do this then the supply that supplies the lower voltage range will get shorted through the ground prong of the 2nd supply.Please note that connecting switching power supplies in series doesn't always work, and can sometimes lead to destructive results, so doing so can be risky. If you're going to do this then read up on the subject some more because there are other details you'll need to know (a general understanding of how switching power supplies work would help). If you don't know much about electronics in general then I would recommend not trying connecting these supplies in series.

can any one please elaborate all the connections o a circuit board?
This unit has many great functions that are configured by a combination of the front panel and how you wire the rear terminal block. It is a stable regulated power supply at the specified output.The unit ships with proper wiring configs for the desired features and the I/O you desire.If you desire to know if it will meet you needs, call PE tech. The varios options are too varied to provide in this area.

How do I safely supply power to the amp?
I received this amp and it includes a power cord. The amp has three inputs, a "ground," an "N," and an "L." The cord only has two wires, so is it safe to assume they go to the "N" and "L" outputs? Is it okay for the ground to not be used?Also, their advertised "120/240v switch" actually came as a 115/230v switch. Anyway, it came initially on the 230v setting. Is this correct or should I move it to the 115 volt setting since the typical residential home is running ~120v through the walls?Thanks,Adam
This is not an Amp. It is an AC power supply to convert house current to operate DC devices.. N ans L are not outputs they are AC inputs. I suggest you call parts express to make sure you better understand.

Would it be possible to use this in a car?
Was going to try and use this and the Sure 4x100 amp instead of a stock amp, but not 100% sure it will be compatible with a car powering it.
This power supply requires 110/220 VAC input, so it would not work in a vehicle without a high power inverter.The Sure amplifiers should work just fine in a car audio environment powered off of the battery, meaning no additional power supply would be needed.

What is the best way to add an on/off switch when using the power supply in conjunction with the sure 2x100w amp?
The power should always be switched between the wall and the power supply. There are a number of power inlet modules on the market which combine the IEC inlet and a switch, some also include fuses and filter circuits. I don't know too much about this power supply but if it is unfiltered, then you should use a filter module so that it's switching noise doesn't back feed onto the power grid and affect other equipment in your house.
