Hey you guys, how's it going, well I wasn't sure where I should post this but since I just joined I figured why not here.
Alright well I bought some subs 2 years ago from a guy at work and now would like to upgrade to better sound, more power in the bass, etc.
I have a 2001 Pontiac Grand AM with an aftermarket Pioneer deck, can't remember off the top of my head which specific one it is. The speakers are two 12" Alpine type E and the AMP is Alpine MRP 450.
I have yet to fully understand how much wattage you can have before you need to get a better alternator or capacitor, etc.
The wiring kit said it was up to 1500 watts and it would be awesome if I didn't have to go through the whole re wiring process.
Just wondering if there was anything you guys would recommend that I could go up to and get that would give me more yet not so powerful that it would shut off my car, wreck my alternator, blow anything, etc.
Already blew the right sub because I didn't know how to balance it correctly and when I bought it from the guy he had it turned up all the way on the AMP.
As you can see I do not know really anything about these things yet and hope to learn over the years.
Hopefully you guys can help or maybe even direct me to something that will help me understand the meanings of terms better.
