    Engine off, system on... battery = how long?

    If I bump my system with my engine off (say, at a sound off or car show or something), how long till my battery dies?

    1000w rms amp

    Battery? Are you actually pushing 1000 rms? Wiring? Big 3?

    Don't get me wrong, even if you put up all this info, I wouldn't be able to answer, but all these things will probably be factors. Make it easier for the guys that might know.

    32.736 minutes.



    No speaker, in the history of speakers, has ever been blown by too little power. Ever. I don't care what your friend told you, he's a dirty liar.

    It depends on a lot of factors. Best bet is to get a voltmeter and turn your stereo off when the voltage dips below 10.8v when no music is playing, your car will barely start but it'll at least start.
