What to do to power it?


Unregistered guest
Hey guys, what sort of car upgrades should I do if Im going to install 2 kicker solox 12", and 2 kicker 2500.1 amps? Thats 5000 watts. Could I get away with 2 1.0 farad capacitors (1 to each amp) and a optima yellowtop battery to just power the stereo? Thanks.

no, the capacitors and new battery won't do anything without that little thing that powers them, the alternator. you will need an HO Alternator for sure, prob more then one for that much power.

Yea, alternator first.
Adding an extra battery might help after you get the alternator.
5000W @ 12v = 416.66A
5000W @ 14.5v = 344.83A
