I have a 2004 2500 chevy duramax
and i am wondering what kind of high output alternator i should get...
im running a DD 3515 with a 2250 planet audio amp and another 1000w 4ch amp for the 6.5 alpines.
any suggestions?

If your lights don't dimm, leave it alone. Do a search and read some of the horror stories.

no prob. his alternators seem good what you really need to look for is what does highest amps at lowest rpms

There isn't a car stereo in the world that's gonna crack an engine block. Unless it's a Kia.
