    max wattage?

    i have an 07 Jeep Liberty with a 140 amp alternator and all stock electrical. i want to sell the Jeep in the next year or so, so i do not want to do any electrical upgrades (not even Big 3). i'm currently pushing a Diamond Audio D1000.1 at 1 ohm, giving me 1100 watts of power.. but i want more power. how many watts can i push to my subs with my stock electrical, 4 gauge wiring, and 140 amp alt.

    i have two D4 SA12's



    Two AA Mayhem motored 18's with SSA Zcon parts on 5k.

    Bought From: kickerassman, I Heart Vtec, dadydolas, gameovercca (x2), SPLaudio
    Sold To: Nopony7, 04murdalanche (x2), gameovercca

    Re: max wattage?

    You're the only one who can answer that.

    Just buy batteries and do the big 3, that can all be taken out in less than 15 minuets when you sell your car and re used for the next build.

    if you're not willing to do any of that, you're not going anywhere buddy. Unless you destroy your alternator. Then you are forced to buy one.

    not very much more,maybe 2-300 watts,not going to make much of a difference,any more than that and you could very quickly destroy your alternator.

    Again.. you're the only one who will be able to tell us. It's not something that we will be able to tell you because of all the variables involved.

    Should be able to do this. But as stated certain vehicles do fine without any electrical upgrades and some kill themselves trying to maintain. You may not even get a full 1500 rms with the voltage anyway..

    Even if you did get the full 1500, you would not hear a difference.

    It is not a big enough increase to be audible.

    Because power isn't volume?

    Re: max wattage?

    I wouldn't run much more power than that on 4g, maybe get away with 1500rms assuming its quality ofc.
    As already stated, a couple hundred more watts won't gain you any real output.

    eh, might as well stay with the 1100 watts if it won't pay to go to 1500... but i have heard great things about EFX wire
