Youcan plug your guitar straight into it for clean sound, use a distortion pedal as a preamp or builf one of thgose FET tube am simulators (Dr Tweed for bluesier sounds, Dr Boogie for Heavy Metal), all of them work from 9V, easily gotten from your 12V battery.Go for efficient guitar speakers, you don't have power to spare.Worst are car type woofers, muddy and unefficient; best are Jensen MOD 6-15 or 8-20, relatively inexpensive, and the real thing.Try to get them in 4 ohms.
