    i would not drop below 12 volts...they can probably handle a bit lower for short amounts of time but i would not risk it

    Also im going to get the ALT with adjustable voltage... I think it can go up to like 17 or 18 volts.... Well my batteries are stinger spv70's and they say they can handle up to 15volts.. So my question is that if I adjust my voltage to lets say 16Volts for burps will I be ok or will the batteries fail on me?

    Anything below 11 is prolly not top good if you're contuning to play it while seeing low 11s

    Wat ohm you rubbin them at?
    I'd be more worried about the subs takin that power than amps really

    I always have it around 13. I'd say turn it off if lower than 12 like bones suggested

    The subs are dual 2ohm so I will be running the amps strapped at 2 ohms..... Does anyone know if these amps would be able to handle a .5 ohm burp while they are strapped... I know each amp would be seeing .25 ohms but im sure it would be a lil higher with box rise... I would also roll in with the volume

    Re: How Low is to Low for voltage?

    So Below 12V is a NO NO!! Ok guys thanks for the help.... So instead of me making a new thread will these amps be able to burp at a .5ohm load strapped?

    All zenon built amps are capable of doing that for short periods of time. Not for daily though.

    Also, id add a couple more batteries if I were you

    Re: How Low is to Low for voltage?

    You low voltage may be due to having three batteries. have you tried only using one battery?
