    I have my big 3 done in 1/0 in my camaro. My batt gauge is lucky to be as high as yours, when the bass hits, sometimes it drops to the red. But i got my battery tested and its only putting out 490 cold crankin amps....so i'm probably going to go with a yellow top like you.

    Hard tellin, i just got a factory replacement alt here not to long ago, i still get dimming like a *****, but i think my bad battery has something to do with that.

    BTW - camaro's **** for bass heads. other wise i'd be running 2 fully loaded BTL's now probably. But you can't even get a 15 in there with proper air space..but they're easy to get loud..

    I don't see the problem. The guage is hsowing that the electrical is sitting at around 14V. This is right where you DO want it.

    Re: (PICTURES!)Big 3 Done Today but . . . Still Weak? HELP!!! (Alt?)

    Don't give our cars that much credit mazdakid, I have a 92 talon tsi awd and we only have 65amp alternators, unless we take a 90 from a GVR4. I definitely get dimming at idle, and when the junky bass hits whilst at cruising speeds, the HU will dim very little. And thats considering that I have 4 speakers on the front channel of the HU, but I have the f/b bias at 4/6.

    Off topic, but do you do any performance work to your DSM?

    Comaros can use a standard small case GM alternator right? HO alts for thoes things are cheap.

    However your voltage looks perfectly fine.

    Aren't their places where you can get your stock alternator rewound for higher outputs?
