I want to run a kicker 1750.1 or a AQ2200 and a Alpine PDX 4.150 for my next setup. Both of these are Class D amps idk if that helps.

Total it will be from 2000-2500 watts RMS, what will i need to get it done safely?


I have a Honda civic with a 90 amp alternator stock.


I was thinking:


-eBay 180 amp alternator
-Optima Yellow Top up from
-1/0 gauge going to mono amp
-6 gauge going to mids/highs amp
-Big 3 done




whats the cheapest complete HO alternator i could get? thats good though
F/s: 2 custom made boxes, for 1 12" and 2 12" hit me up I'll let em go cheap

I'd go with a big battery and some 0 gauge to the back. That's about it. Maybe the stock battery and a medium sized AGM battery in the back.

My friend is running similar power to you (1600w mono, 2 PDX100.4's) on a Celica with stock alt and a flooded battery. No issues whatsoever in like 2 years.

For around that power id do:

-120a alt Iraggi,DC power,Mechman...etc(Not that high dollar, maybe $120-$150,The reason for only a 120a alt is because it will be better then your Stock 90a and its not that expensive)
-1 med size to large bat(XS D925,Kinetik HC800,C&D Liberty 1000 or Liberty FA...etc)(Not sure on prices for those.)
-BIG3 in 1/0 KNU,Kicker,Welding type wire,shok...etc
-1/0 run to the back for mono, and like 4ga for your Mids/highs amp(thats what ill be doing soon, 4ga is already ran so ill be using that on my Mids/highs amp, then 1/0 for my mono)

You could get away with Big 3 and stock electrical, but don't expect to be pushing all 2k out of the amp.
But alt wise, your 90 will be fine, concentrate on adding a solid under the hood battery. Most people will tell you to go crazy with a new alt and bigass battery in the back, but in all honesty you just need more aH.

the fuck???

120 amp alt is completely pointless, thats $120-$150 that he could save for later if he wants to upgrade.
As long as the guy isnt ripping on it (like burping for an hour straight) the alt should have too much trouble keeping up. especially with a little extra battery storage

Make sure you watch your voltage thats key. If you alt will comepletely handle everything you know wipers fuel pump charging the batts headlights EVERYTHING includingthe stereo you can bump all day long but if your amp cant keep up your relying on the batts to power the excess so you have to keep your eye on the voltage. And it has to be with a real meter like a stinger or something. Otherwise your going to be bumping on 10volts and we all know what happens then;)

Ok guys i have a (rockford t1000) 1000 watt RMS amp, and 2 rockford T1 10's 600 RMS watt's a peace. I have done the BIG 3, upgraded to a 250 amp alt, and a brand new 1000 cranking amp dura last gold battery. My question is why is everything still dimming on me? This is going down the road mind you, with the motor spinning around 3000 RPM. I'm prob going to do a dual battery setup with another dura last gold. I just don't understand why I'm still getting the dang dimming.
