    Mechman 220 Amp Alt for Rockford T2500??

    Will a Mechman 220 Amp alternator be enough for the Rockford T2500-1bdcp? Just want to be 100% sure before I buy it. The birthsheet says the amp will do 3532 watts @ 2ohms and thats the ohm level I'm running it at. Thanks everybody.

    That amps rated 1500 rms @ 2 ohm and 2500 @ 1. I know it's underrated but it is not putting out 3.5k.

    Are you for real smart guy? This amp puts out that same power @ 1 and 2 ohm.

    The amp does 2071x1 @ 4ohms, 3532 x1 @ 2ohms, and 3617x1 @ 1ohm...got the birthsheet right here...my alternator right now is 55 amps (1972 Cutlass Supreme) so I def know I have to upgrade it either way...

    You should get around 2700-2800w with a good amount of power supply. We clamped ours around 2700 watts dropping to 11v and 2800 at 12v. I would not expect a whole thousand watts out of it though.

    Didn't know they did the same at 1 and 2.. Still, it's not gonna put out 3 k regardless.
