    Questions for my upcoming 2010 Jeep Install

    Installing:
    HU-Alpine INA-W910
    Speakers- Hertz HSK 165 up front and Hertz DSK 165 in the sound bar
    Amp's- Hifonics HFi 1500D & HFi 100.4(please don't Flame me, I got these about 1-1 1/2 years ago not knowing any better and they are still BNIB)

    So my question is do you think these will be ok for my speaker and sub choices? The sub will have to be ran at 3 Ohm because the 1500D is only 1 Ohm stable. What can I expect to get the 1500D to do? I was hoping for at least 600 watts at 3 Ohm. I can buy another Sub Amp if you really think it is needed but would prefer to use what I have. This install is getting more expensive than I had originally intended. I am having an alarm installed as I type this and feel like I got bent over with no lube. $700 for a Viper 2 way alarm with Glass Break Sensor. Plus I like the idea of matching amps. I am looking at a SKAR 1500D in the amp classified's if it is really needed.

    Electrical:
    My Jeep has an OEM 140 Amp Alt and OEM Battery. I plan to run 0 AWG power and ground to distribution blocks in the back then 4 AWG power and ground to the amps. I bought an Absolute 0 AWG kit, only plan on using the 0 AWG and Fuse Block with 200 Amp fuse from this kit. The 0 AWG is OFC and measures out as true 0 AWG. I have a EFX Power and Ground Distro for the for the Amp's in the back. Both are 0 AWG inputs and 4 AWG outputs. The Power Distro has a LED Voltage display and needs 2 AFC mini wafer fuses, what fuse size do you recommend for this?

    I also have a bunch of 4 AWG Kicker Hyperflex wire that I had originally intended to use to do the Big 3 and short runs from distros to the amps. Now I am thinking I need to use 0 AWG for Big 3. 17' of 0 AWG came with the Absolute kit. I am hoping to get the run to the back and at least the power and ground from ALT to chasis with 0 AWG. If I run short on 0 AWG for the Big 3 can I maybe double or triple 4 AWG from battery to chasis?

    The last thing I need an enclosure built, trying to get a design done by DC Creations. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated. I think this is probably my first post so hello to everyone as well. :wave

    you could buy a dual 4 or dual 1ohm woofer and wire the amp down to 2/1 ohm instead of 3 ohms honestly. how much room do you have in that jeep?

    I am planning to take the rear seats out, so I have room. But I already own 2 12" Type R's that can be wired down to 1 Ohm. I would rather have the 13 W7 though I think.

    Re: Questions for my upcoming 2010 Jeep Install

    After closer inspection of the Absolute 0 AWG it appears to be a mix of copper and aluminum. Should I use this or get some different 0 AWG for my power run to the back and Big 3?

    It says OFC on the jacket of the wire. As far as the power it will be a Hifonics HFi 1500D and HFi 100.4 unless someone says I should not use these amps. Right now its just OEM battery and Alt. Alt is 140 Amp. Hoping to be able to get at least 600watts from the 1500D at 3 Ohm. That Skar amp in amp classifieds is really tempting lol.

    Re: Questions for my upcoming 2010 Jeep Install

    Any idea if that Skar amp will run at 0.75 for a daily driver on stock electrical? Or what I could expect at 3 Ohms? Keep in mind I don't drive my Jeep a whole lot I have a work van I use for well work lol and the Jeep haha it only has 2500 miles on it. But I don't want to screw anything up and void any warranty on my Jeep.
