    the 2500d will make u upgrade ur battery and ur alt.. so it will be more expensive... the xx hercules will run with the stock elec system so will the usamps merlin d2.. maybe leter on upgrade to a yellow top for your system, heck u can put one under the hood and use it as ur main battery and have a lil increase

    i already have a yellow top and i was planning on doing the big 3 with 1/0 gauge wires. right now i have a stock 140a alternator. if the big 3 and the yellow top does not help, i'll be getting an iraggi alternator.

    my budget for the amp is no more than $700.
