    us amps optimizer

    will the US Amps optimizer stop me from needing a additional battery? My alternator puts out 135 amps and I have all 1/0 gauge wiring from alternator to battery and all my grounds. I'm using for my MMats 3000.05 pushing two Juggernaut 15's in a ported enclosure tuned to 33.8hz

    Re: us amps optimizer

    you're going to need a MUCH bigger alternator for that amp...MUCH bigger

    Im assuming it has 85% efficiency at .5ohm (its probably less...but its a moot point)

    2500(1.15) = 2875 amps/14.4 = ~ 200 amps and thats if you can supply 14.4, itd be closer to 240 at 12v

    Re: us amps optimizer

    Would it just be better to add a bigger alternator and batteries or should I add alternator, and the optimizer?
