amperage and voltage???
i have an Orion 2400 XTRPro amp... ok, my problem is i recently installed it into my civic.. which has a stock alt. and stock battery.. well, i cant turn my radio up very loud wit out the amp cutting off.. its not gettin to hot, i believe its just droppin to many volts to stay on.. it played fine i my other car , which i had a bigger alt and a optima yellow top battery.. but it plaed fine.. i recently ran a second battery, and it helped out a little..but it still cuts off.. the amps draws up to 300 amps of current.. which is ALOT.. which i also have a another amp ran, along w/ tv, dvd player, ps2.. and everything else the car runs.. so what size of ALT do i need and whats the cheapest? i know im looking at something that going to cost me alot.. over 500$would it be best to try to ge 1 ALT or to go ahead and run 2? or do the even make an ALT that big? i mean im not even sure if it is the voltage.. i know i need to run a volt meter to it.. but i 98% sure tha what it is...
another question; when i ran my 2nd battery...i ran it parrelled from my 1st battery? some1 told me that i should have ran it in series w/ it? is that so? and if so, how do i go about running it in series w/ the 1st battery
