Problems with having too big of an amp(s)
Just a question about power from an amp on your electrical system and the stress is causes.
I'm currently running 2 JL500.1 amps off a stock alt., stock batt., 0/1 runs and the big3 done. The amps claim to put around 500-600 each, so say I have about 900-1000 RMS currently going to my subs.
Now, since I dont have a High Output alt or upgraded battery yet, and if I used a couple of MUCH larger amps, and they were strapped for around a 3000RMS output, obviously if would strain my system much more than the JL's. But even if the amps are much larger, could I just turn down my gains down a lot and adjust setting to find an area where my car can handle it, EVEN though in reality the amps shouldnt be on the electrical system I got ???
I'd rather have a lot of spare power not used that can be maybe utilized inthe future instead of not enough power but the amps are running well on my system
hope my question makes sense to y'all
