i installed a t20001bd the amp rating on it is 250a, i just installed a 300amp alternator from EA and i have a HC2000 kentetik battery in the trunk but im still getting voltage drop on the dash when i bang it hard..
what do you guys think? could the HC2000 be weak and need replacing (ive had it for 2 years) or something else
i love the t20001bd but im not getting the most out of it right now.. ive done the big-3 minus the ground on the engine block..
i was thinking about getting my old 240 amp alternator rebuilt and running dual alternators to dual batteries in the trunk.. how would i run 2 alternators and 2 diffrent batteries to one amp? some type of distrobution block with 2 0guage inputs?
does this sound like a good idea? ide really like to hold that 14volts at all times..
also i dunno whether it matters or not but i have a red top under the hood and a kinetik 2000 in the trunk, ive heard people say dont use 2 diffrent kinds of batteries? there is no isolator in this configuration..
you might look into a smaller pulley on the alt, that would increase the rpm's on the rotor, but maintaining 14v is REALLY hard to do, because even a GOOD alternator needs some time to react to the current demand and increase its output.
Some type of quick discharge battery near the amp or a cap of some kind may help in this situation. You clearly have the current available. It seems you just have a quick response problem.
you might wanna look into a couple yellow top or batcap they are good, but a steady 14 that's gon be hard, sounds like you have a lot running, give me a walk through on what n how you hsve it hooked up if you have time to list everything
well i changed the ground on the amp from the body to the battery in the trunk and it did make a diffrence.. voltage is alot more solid, maybe ill just grab like 2 extra kenitik 3800's that should do the trick eh?
