    Warhorse eletrical recommendations

    Well Im getting very excited as the days past to receive my kicker warhorse In the mail and I already started the construction of my box and I would really to know what would be the best way to start upgrading my electrical to run this beast. I drive a 09 dodge challenger with a stock 160 alternator. Not sure if this will affect any reccomendations but the battery comes stock in the truck. Well if there is anything I have l left out that people might need to know feel free to ask. Also please no off the wall recommendations like 12 batteries 5 alternators or anything else you might of read off the Internet. I need a serious car audio person might know from personal attempts or something close to that.

    Re: Warhorse eletrical recommendations

    If you think 12 batteries is an "off the wall" suggestion you really bought the wrong amp... Really it depends how you intend to run it, but I wouldn't even dream of less than 6 big batteries

    All of these are very accurate. Unless you plan on hooking it up at 8 ohms, you're gonna have problems. I can't imagine why you would have bought it....
    @slammedincouch has one, he could tell you his electrical.

    Probably will need 2 large alts to run the system along with as stated 5-6 batts. GLWB

    Two RE XXX 18's

    and stock electrical is not even a option but im looking for specific type of batteries or alternators that would run on my dodge challenger without and electrical issues anywhere else in the car. My buddy suggested the idea of 4 xs 16 volt batteries isolated by a regulator to run it off stock alternator but i wanted some second opinions before i made a commitment

    oh you thought so, but after the exspense of all them batts and alts and power wire, it wont seem like much of a deal. Those things alone should cost about $2,000

    dont mess around. make sure you have the electrical set up before you try this amp out, or else you can kill the amp. = wasted time and $

    Well if he wires it up to 4 ohms and turns down the gains a ton, he might be able to get by with just an isolated 16v HO alt and a small bank of batteries:P

    If you were smart man, you'd sell this and get a Sundown 4500 and pocket the extra cash. Or trade it straight across for the Sundown and batteries or something.
    But you're definitely gonna have to drop at least $1k in electrical, and that's being exceptionally modest.
