I just installed a new 200 amp alternator on my bronco and im running 3000w rms (6000 max) and my battery gauge still drops when my system hits , is this normal? I plan on getting a cap in the near future but I figured the alt would help a little more than it did. pre-thanks
ok anyone can help with this. I am running 2 jl 500/1's that come up to 100amps + a ppi pcx 2200 that does 80amps. So the total whould come to 180amps. I will be using 1000 watts RMS from the JL amps total and 400 watts rms from the ppi amp and that whould come up to 1400 watts RMS total for the system. What size alternator whould be ideal???
and skrilluh if you are running 3000 rms true watts you are running 250. 4 guage is not thick enough wire for you. You need a 300 amp alternator plus 0 guage wire and also you need to redo your grounds to your alternator, battery, and your engine block.
