    Better amp for daily? Memphis 4kw or Atomic 5000

    So which do you think will be better for daily? I have the opportunity to pick up either one, the Atomic 5000 would be a little bit more money of course, but neither would be too expensive. My electrical consists of a stock alternator, optima g34 up front, 1/0 big three, 1 run of 1/0, and kinetik hc2400 in the back.


    So which one would one would you go with?

    Additionally, which will handle the 0.5 ohm reactive load presented by my Dual 1 9515 daily better?

    i'd always go for more power, aren't the 4kws a little bit of a current hog and don't they fry at lower voltage? i'd not chance it depending on how big your stock alt is.

    Re: Better amp for daily? Memphis 4kw or Atomic 5000

    ah oh that makes more sense.... id have to say the atomic tho that memphis is more of a higher voltage amp i think,....


    and the needing a h/o alt soon, will really only depend on your listening and drain on the battery or batteries your using... just charge at nights..... i have been using a 60 amp alt on alot of diff amps and so far the bigger the amp it seems to be more efficient in my case atleast....

    Only two companies make one for my car

    HO Alternators - $650 for 180 amps

    Ohio Generators - $500 for 180 amps


    So, as of right now, that ain't gonna happen.

    that's why i said, depending on his current alt.. already

    he may not, i've ran 3,800 roughly on my stock 80 with a single yellowtop and no big three, just have to know what you're doing. i'm sure he does too.

    I contacted Isuzu about my stock alternator, and none of the techs could tell me what it was.

    I went in to a dealership, but apparently I got there too late (from Clemson to Greenville, 5 pm on a Saturday, I was like WTF?!)

    Memphis is a great amp, but yes it is a current hog and will fry in a heart beat with low voltage.

    I would get the atomic to have the headroom later on, and imo, it will like the .5 ohm better than the memphis.

    With either amp, as I am sure you know, you'll definantly have to watch your voltage. And with the alt, have you ever considered getting a custom alt built?

    That's pretty much the same thing as a blazer or a jimmy, might be able to put one if those alts on it.
