    I don't have experience with anyone other than DC Power Inc. I have a 270XP from them and it's been great, voltage is good and quality is great. There are a few others out there, Mechman, Ohio Gen, Tenney, and a couple others I can't think of right now. If one of these is local, go that route.

    PowerBastards sells one for my bronco that puts out 220+ at 1200 rpms for $350. Would that be good?

    There's a reason the XS are so expensive...bud over in NH is running a saz-3k @1ohm off a D3400 and a 150A stock alt and he doesn't drop below 13v

    Re: Will one Big Battety with Stock Alt be enough

    Do you have a 200A in there now, or is that a different vehicle? Also, I missed the part about running it at 2 ohms. Sorry. Get the battery first, you will want that if you get an alt or not, and you might be just fine. Just buy a voltage meter as well and watch it the first couple times you turn it up and watch your volume knob, and then decide if you need an alt or not. You might not.
