Tyler, with a 1200 watt RMS amp, you really need to get a better alternator. :-)

The sub really dosnt matter, it's just about how much current your amplifier is pulling.

Yeah... I live in the desert, though.. so it's dry heat at least.. (but it gets soo frigid in the winter, lol.)

Worst part is I'm irish.. so if I'm working on my car, (since I dont have a garage) I HAVE to find shade.. I burn in like 30 minutes.. a couple weeks ago I was burned so bad I had HUGE blisters covering my neck and shoulders, lol.. Couldnt even move my arms without it hurting like a mofo.

thats impressive driving reckless. you should get a video of that. that would be cool.

but nothing beats catching massive airs on a halfpipe with a snowboard.
