    voltage drops affecting amp output??

    im geting voltage drops under 10volts, so low my power cap stops reading and just says "low". will adding a 2000 amp knetic battery or two help keep my power above 11-12? and will i also gain output from my amps?

    ditch the cap, buy a solid batt or two, problem solved.

    bigger alt would help the most, batts will help too

    Re: voltage drops affecting amp output??

    trust me i looked into duel alts or a 250-300 amp alt but to change alts in a 07 pt requires you to pull engine and get a custom alt bracket made. ;-/ from what i hear most db comps have the car off n e Way and i plan on competing so i hope i can manage with added batts, i can add as many as it takes lol.....even considering a 16 volt system but not sure how to wire that up...

    Re: voltage drops affecting amp output??

    if you read all the posts, you would see i really want to run duel alts but its 2grand+ just to pull the engine make a bracket and install the second alt not even including the price of the alt(500). far as i know the HC2000 is only good up to 2k rms so im hoping another one will get me the same gains the first one did..;-) pushing low 150's at 10 volts haha i know im losen a good 500-1k watts from the volt drop./. what u guys think..

    what batt under the hood? if stock then upgrade that, and you dont have to have 2 alts, get like a 250amp one
