    Electrical bragging rights

    Figured since we see so many posts about "I have 4 15s and 5k watt amps" them a week later u see them selling those amps or blown subs and wondering why they ****. I can't speak for everyone but IMO I seen probably the largest increase because of my alternator and keeping my system at 14v. And u also never hear many electrical threads about how many 1/0 runs batts alts etc so let's here it post some up!

    Big 3 all 1/0 knu
    2 pos runs of knu to back battery
    2 total batteries deka 8a31
    1 ohio gen 300 amp alt

    System in sig



    HU: Eclipse avn726e
    Front stage: Infinity Reference 6.5, massive tweeters
    Highs amp: Sundown sax 100.4
    Sub amp: Sundown saz 3000D
    Sub: tc 3000 3hp SPL recone
    Electrical: Ohio 300 amp alternator, Knu 1/0 (2 pos runs), big 3
