    So this is why you asked me about a used or broken 4-channel amp. Power is cheap and there is 0 advantage to buying an abused amplifier and getting it repaired right from the get-go. I'd rather see you running a $100 new amp than to spend $40 on a dead amp and then likely spend more than twice that amount to have a reputable technician repair it and ship it back to you.

    my technician does great work
    Like I mentioned. He fixed my exile x5 and us amp ax3000de for half of what companies would do it for.
    My exile I use. And it is going strong

    I didn't demo much at Frost Off since I worked that night and was dead tired the whole show. I'm sure I'll see you at a show next year, so come up and introduce yourself...

    Also. I just contacted Iraggi yesterday about shipping them my alternator bracket so I can get a 2nd 380 where the A/C goes.
    2 380's at full tilt will drop your motor 1500-1700rpm, just so you know...

    You'll need to haver RPM up around 3000 when playing full tilt as those alts will eat up 10-15Hp each which will bog the motor down. In my van I have to be around 3200RPM when demo'ing as the alts will pull the motor down to around 1500RPM. I only have a weak *** v-6, so not much torque like a v-8

    Ohhhhhh ok. But the alternators don't rob that much horsepower unless your playing full tilt?

    Correct, and you can wire the 2nd alt on a toggle switch, so it's not being used during daily driving...

    But this system is daily. I drive the car mostly during the winter. But the toggle switch would be a good idea for whenever my fiance's in the car and I don't have the music on.

    Can you help me understand it all better. How come the alternator only robs HP when there is a high demand. How come it doesn't rob HP at all times.
    And for the toggle switch. Would I just splice it into my exciter wire? My car only has a single exciter wire that connects to the alternator.

    Alt puts out power on demand, it will draw a few HP all the time, but much more when under a load/putting out max amperage.

    Yes wire a toggle into the exciter/turn on wire and you'll be set...

    Wow. Thank you so much for the information. I was under the assumption the alternator put out max amps based on rpms not load. And that explains why my car drives normal when there is no music. But when I turn the music on. My car feels a lot slower.

    And the toggle switch a great idea. Thank you for that!

    Re: Is this why my front stage gets over taken by my sub stage?

    Hey Jockhater2 I bought the 2 zv.3 from you. They are doing well on the saz 3500. Doing a 146.9 out of the trunk. I just redid my front stage with CDT 6.5 and 3/4" tweet. I am running them active off a sax 100.4. Sounds great and keeps up with that much sub stage. Why dont you look for a sax 100.4? They go for like $250 shipped used. They have great crossovers with hpf, lpf, subsonic and switchable 12db and 24db slopes.
