    Re: Which amp poll.

    Amp models would help also lol. I love sundown if you can afford (the sae line isn't that expensive but the other line is). Orion xtr amps are cheap and put out real good numbers though.

    Re: Which amp poll.

    I think Vital power and b2 use same / similar guts on comparable amps. Sundown scv-7500d can be had for around $2000.
    VP 700.1 can be had around $1100, and probably the b2 also I am assuming. Orion HCCA8000.1D can be had for just shy of $1100.
    It comes down to what you want. You have a budget or can you get a good deal on 1 out of the bunch?

    Re: Which amp poll.

    8k plus models
    Orion hcca 8000.1d or 110001d
    Vital power is supported to be I guess 7kw but it does more.
    The b2 M1U
    SUNDOWN 7500
    I might end up doing 18v so I'm not sure. Only one that is 18v stable is the VP

    Re: Which amp poll.

    I could still do 16 if the efficency is better.
    I'm at a huge disadvantage with this build.
    Small space. One alternator not much room for batteries etc..
