I spoke withsomeone at the db world finals that said i need two 200 amp alternators for my orion 5000d (ordered it today). how difficult is the process of having them put on? Is there major modifications involved? Am i getting into some serious labor fees?

Yes, yes, and yes. Cars aren't made to have to have 2 alts. So whoever is installing these for you is going to have to custom make a mounting braket for the second one. Just buying the 2 200A alts will be a hefty fee by itself.

depending on the vehicle...very, GM...not so much....jap, forget about it. lol

it would require a bracket of some sort i imagine to mount the second alt....and a bigger belt.(longer)

labor....lets not even talk about that.

well its a option besides if u gonna have such power & bumping on the streets with ur windows down then a/c wont be needed right or if he is entering comps with it often - who knows

but if im not mistaken they make ho alt up to 350A now so maybe that'll be sufficient enough ......

I don't think they are made for daily drivers though Rovin.They probably produce close to no charge at idle .So that's a recipe for clipping your subs to death.I'm not sure on this though but a lot of those super HO alts(300 and up) are made for SPL comp use only.You can always check with the manufacturer though.I myself have to get in touch with Iraggi to see what is the maximum amp alt I can get for my daily driver and still have charge at idle.

I was told that the super ho alternators (250+) burn up quick and that they would be lucky to last a year. i spoke with two differtent alternator companys. one said they have no idea whats up with car audio and dont have any ideas about applying a second. the other guy was even less informitive and tried to get me on for 400 on a 200 amp.
