    Help Me CHOOSE AN AMP!!!!!

    Alright it seems that all the dang amps i want are either on back order or on back order lol. Alright here is the amp i wanted to get . RE 35 1D On back order lol. Then i was thinking about a Better Audio Amp, on back order too. Im hooking the amp up to my 12" XXX. Here was my ideas lol.

    Arc Audio amp. Not Sure which one but one of them.
    ED Nine.1

    Thats all i can think of. I want an amp with 1500x1 captables. Basically somehting similar to the RE and BA amps. Do you guys have any ideas? Anything is welcomed. Thanks

    Yea steve thats the one i was looking into getting. Do you think i would be alright with a 150 amp alternator with the 1500-r and a xxx setup? Also be running a alpine 9813 with cdt audio cl 61a and a us acoustics 2080 amp.

    That may be a little much for a 150amp alt...let me do the math.

    Bust out the old ohms law... I = P/V

    I dont think there is an amp that is 100% efficient...so we'll say this one is ~ 70% or 75% efficient at full volume. Plus you're obviously going to experience a voltage sag (call it 12volts for now, stock electrical system). Im sure the amp does more than 1500 watts as well.

    1600 / 12 volts = 133.3 amps.

    133.3 + 25% = 166amps...

    I think thats the right formula, someone want to check it over? It's 25% because we called it 75% efficient, in case you're wondering.

    Nate, i am taking your advice, i just wanted to get some more advice before i spent 250$ and then not let it be enough lol.

    Steve, thats for doing the math, i understand all of it. I think im going to try and get a 180amp alternator or even a 200amp alternator built, just to be on the safe side.

    Again nate, i was taking your advice, sh*t ive takin your advice on almost everything lol. Liek the CDT's and US Acoustics amp. lol.

    your not gonna be gettin 14.4v while your amp is drawing that much power constantly. the voltage will "sag" a little.
