i have a spare amplifier(like you would use in a car sound system) and a computer power source along with random speakers i have this idea of a monitor (crt) housing with all components removed and replaced with some speakers and an amp... powering it is the issue. thats where the power supply comes in, i have been informed that if you were to splice the #14 and #15 wires on the 20wire connection of a psu you can turn the supply on like hitting the power switch on the faceplate of a computer with a motherboard. does anyone know if you could run a switch between these wires for selective power; or just have any ideas or tips?

Just google converting PSU to power supply and you will have your answer to question.
You are in the right direction!
