    Advice/Questions new system

    Got stock battery and alternator.
    1300 watt amp wired to 2 ohms, so im guessing im not getting full RMS.
    2 sa 12's, im going to big 3 upgrade when it gets warmer out.
    Im going to add a 4channel amp, I want to place it in my trunk.
    Will I need to get a battery in my trunk if I have 2 amps?
    Also how much power do you think each SA is actually seeing?
    1300RMS amp wired to 2 ohms, 4 gauge wire and still have my 80a maxi fuse.

    Re: Advice/Questions new system

    What's the stock alternator on your car output? I don't need any batteries for anything below about 1500-2000w but my stock alt is 130 amps which is larger than average

    Re: Advice/Questions new system

    I couldn't tell you the ALT output..
    But If I hook a 4 channel up as well, will I need another battery in trunk?
