1) When upgrading alternator the wires u need to upgrade are alternator to + battery. Battery - to where alternator bolts to engine. Are there any other wires i need to upgrade?

2) When adding a second battery do i need 2 inline fuses? (One after the first battery and one after the second battery)

3)If i need 2 different inline fuses (one after each battery) can u use 2 200amp fuses (im running a Massive Audio P3000.1)

4) Will a 220 full and 175 idle alternator do the trick for this system?




Thanks for the help.

1) Big 3
2) I did mines like this
Front battery
Fuse
Second Battery
Fuse
Amps
3) Base your fuse size on the size of your wire, not the amp.
4) Yes that will be fine for running 1 massive p3k.1

alt + to batt +
batt - to chassis/frame -
chassis/frame - to engine block (anywhere on the engine block, but not at a location such as the header or oil pan.)

I use a 300amp inline fuse for my massives

I have a total of 4 300amp inline fuses, 2 after the front batt, and 2 after the back battery to the amps. I like the massives because I know I have over 5000rms. for 1, I never get low to 12.6 volts and I stay above 13.5 volts. So I'm probaly getting 5600-5700rms out of my amps. Their good, but trying to sell them is hard, resale value is pretty low, so I decided to keep mines and probaly go with another one, making it 3 3000.1's.
