    Need some installation help please. . .

    Have a few questions im hoping someone can help me out with...

    Im dropping 3500.00 on a system. So far, this is what im working with. . .

    Head Unit - Pioneer AVIC-N2
    Front Components - OZ Audio
    Rear Coax Drivers - OZ Audio
    Mid-Bass - 2 RE 8's
    Sub- 18" RE SX

    Amps:
    RE 12.1 for sub
    Directed 500/2 for the 8's
    Directed A404 for the mids and highs.

    Monitors:
    x2 5.5" head rest Monitors
    7.5" lilliput touchcreen VGA monitor for the PC

    PC/Video:
    Custom built PC (250watt P/S)
    And finally a Game Cube

    All of this will be installed in a 1999 suburban. The stock Altenator is 145amps.

    My question is, do you think all this is overkill on the stock Altenator and Battery?

    Would i benifit from adding an additional battery.

    If so, can I wire 2 batteries up w/o an isolator? Or will need a Battery Isolator?

    If i can wire two batteries w/o an isolator, how would i accomplish that?

    Im willing to get my stock altenator rewound to 200amps, but im not willing to buy a second altenator. Its not in my budget, and everything i typed out is what i have to work with.

    thanks in advance for any help i get.

    1.) re8's are not well suited for midbass. Look in to the Koda8 or the RE 6.5xxx, plenty of better options...

    2.) Alt, You will want to upgrade your stock battery at the least. Either a stronger starting battery or deep cycle. Hook it all up first and see if there is anything that needs to be fixed. Don't spend money on somthing you don't yet know to be broken.
