Default Powering my Busking Equipment - Help Needed?

Hi all, I could really use your knowledge and help please?

I am after a power supply to run these items with a 12v car battery pack and inverter.

Can anyone let me know what size inverter I would need for approx 3 hours busking?

This is my set-up
1 X Mixing desk ( to plug mics, instruments, iphone and other things into ) 240v

1 X Boss GT10B Pedal - Power Supply 240v to DC 9V (AC Adaptor: Roland PSB-1U) - Current Draw - 800 mA

1 X Boss RC300 - Power Supply 240v to DC 9V (AC adaptor) - Current Draw - Maximum 320 mA (DC 9 V)

1 x Roland Micro Cube 240v to DC 9V

1 X Behringer B300, 300 watt powered speaker 240v

1 X small Asus Laptop 240v


I appreciate that I will need to use a 6 gang plug from the inverter aswell!


Can anyone with the knowledge offer help as regards powering this lot above please for busking?


# Also is it possible to use a car jump start pack as a battery power pack to power this lot with an inverter?


Thanks
D

Are you playing a didge on the street? If so, why do you even need all the other stuff?

Start small and work your way up once you know your way around. Hitting the bricks with a rig like that right off the bat is asking for trouble in more ways than one.

Yeah, as soon as I saw the 300 watt power amplifier I'm thinking that if someone were to set up shop with one of those on the streets of San Francisco, they'd have a cop busting them within about 10 minutes.

Hi peeps, thanks for the replies but none actually answer or help with the original question!

If its easier forget about the 300w speaker as I can utilise the micro cube, but the pedals are important and are staying

So, can someone now offer constructive powering help?

In San Francisco, except for a couple places at the Wharf, such a set up would be run off the street! Loudness isn't much tolerated around here. Dunno what it's like in other towns, though...
