    2 12' Hifonics subs they are 800wats each and the amp is going to be a apsm 1500.and my HU is just going to be a cheaper alpine or kenwood that will be like 50w x 4.Do you all this it should be fine?Also my car is a 2001 buick regal ls.im not sure if you needed to know that i dont really know what my alt is.

    Re: Do you all think my alt should be fine with this set up?

    I have not done my big 3 , I have a gel cell extra battery at the back and my electrical is stable at 13.9 and dips to 12.8 when i do full tilt on my subs, I am running BRZ 1700.1 and a rockford pbr300 which is 75x4 and 2 15 inch Skar VVX.

    If i were you just add an extra battery in your trunk and you would be fine, don't downgrade you will regret it and will eventually spend more money

    I dont recommend replacing, id recommend just simply running a 2nd wire to go alongside of the factory wire. However, its almost impossible to screw up a big 3, though im sure it could be done.
