In a sense this is a contradition in terms. 12V and professional quality audio gear.

Like everything else product development is driven by market demands. There simply are not enough people living off-grid who also demand professionalaudio gear. Even high end car audio gear is nowhere near the quality of professional equipment.

I once had to design for and install Sony sound equipment in an RV bus intended for corporate display. Sony decided to do a road show displaying their equipment. Got $50,000 to spend? That is what it cost a decade ago.

However it was anything but low energy. Yes it can be done but it will not be cheap nor will it be off the shelf. Mind you it may depend on how professional quality is defined. When I worked for the power utility company a client with a recording studio complained about poor quality utility power affecting his recording work.
