where can i find a high powered alternator for a honda civic (1989). also my old alternator (the one that came with the car) and im guessin it was my sound system that killed. put a brand new one in, would it be safe to run the sound system again or not. any help appreciated

How many amps are you using for your sound system and how many amps is your alternator able to put out. Given that it is a 1989 Civic I would have to guess at 60-75 amps.

check eBay.
I see Accord and Civic alternators on there for dirt cheap all the time.
under $200.
usually in the 120-130A range. stock is usually around 60-70A

i have a kx800.2 bridged to a 12" L7 in a 2001 dodge ram with an alternator rated at 136amps, but when i turn my system up loud the amp cuts out and the protection light turns on, when i turn in down it turns back on and keeps playing. shouldnt that alternator be enough to run that amp, is there a way i can get my amp to stop cutting out?

aaron....you need a bigger alt.

that amp is drawing alot of amps!!!Its a class AB amp...

its prolly drawing the most part of that 136A!!!get something like a 160A-180A
