    Help?

    Hello, I have a question. I have 2 12' JL Audio subs W6 with an American Bass 2000W amp. I am wondering if I will need to buy a different alternator. I have a '99 Cutlass Oldsmoble with stock alternator. Help please. Thank you.

    Upgrade your Big 3 with 1/0awg & you should be fine as long as you properly installed the amp.
