    If I need 4000w to power subs, and get a 5000w amp, will the subs get overpowered?

    I wanna run 2 Fi BTL's, 18". These are both 2000w RMS. Is running a 5000w amp to them bad? even if it is not at full power? Would a 4000w amp be better? What electrical am I going to need? 400 amps? What are some solid 4000w amps?

    Sub - 2 Earthquake DBXi-12 (new coming)
    Amps - 2 Sundown SAZ-3000s, Kenwood KAC-4802
    Acc - 4 Batcap 2000, DC AD250SP alt, 4 runs of Knu 1/0 Kolossus Flecks wire, Stinger fuses and ends

    The BTL's will have no problem handling that......some people run 3500+ to them daily.....I would actually recommend running a little more than rms to them, just based on the big 12" challenge......and for electrical, you are going to need a HO alt, a couple of batts, Big 3.....

    Youre going to need the big three in 0 gauge, 2 runs of 0 gauge to the back, a couple good batteries (deka intimadators, kinetic 2400's etc) a good battery under the hood and you might get away with it. If not you need a higher amp alt also. 5000w wont hurt the subs if you know what you are doing, and they probably wont see 5000w anyway.

    let me know if you wanna talk about pricing. but first I need to figure out if I can get something in there place. Its all about if my car, with 1 HO alt and 2 or 3 batteries can run about 4000-5000 watts

    What is your car. I think you could get away without an alt, just NEVER bump with the car off and dont bump it full blast for long period of time (over 20-30 mins straight) and watch your voltage and i think youll be fine (coming from the guy who ran 2200w off stock electrical and 4 gauge wire

    1) thanks for groundpound

    3) Yea im doing a angled wall from rear deck to ground, or just taking out the backseat and building a box for that. My avatar is my current. the subs face back the box, enclosed with wood. youtube video shows it pretty well.
