    You won't blow the alt...not with those amps. You won't be making anywhere near rated power.

    do you mean what brand? what is the voice coil configuration on the subs? also you have a 2 channel powering all 3 subs? i know you can bridge but i can imagine 3 different subs will give you an odd impedence. i don't that amp will be stable to anything under 4 ohms bridged.

    Are you sitting down? If not please do so...

    Not a fan of audiobahn, but they are decent low end subs. That amp you purchased is very very low end equipment. Will not even come close to putting out 2600 watts. I would guess it is more like 600 watts total, with plenty of harmonic distortion. That 4 channel is probably 80 watts total, again plenty of distortion.

    You still have the factory speakers? Why did you not upgrade them. Never mind if you kept on the path you are on. The upgraded speakers would probably not be better than stock.

    You can not blow the alt or battery on 600 watts. There should be no electrical issues with those amps. Did you upgrade any of your electrical system? What gauge wire are you running?

    Mega bass??? no. But as long as you like it

    i'll repeat. WHAT IS THE VOICE COIL CONFIGURATION? you have to know this to pick an amp. you keep saying type so get a mono block. there are so many options so you have to narrow it down. also need a budget. i'm guessing it's not very much.

    Dual 4 ohms. got it. Check this out.

    http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/rftech/wiringwizard.asp

    It will tell you your wiring options.

    A 1200 @ 2 ohm amp will be fine. 1200 RMS <--- Rms is important.

    now budget? there is a PG tantrum 1200.1 in the classifieds that would be perfect. 1400 watts rms at 2-4 ohms. those subs will equal a 2.67 ohm impedence

    Re: alt help? and rate my system

    also i bet your amp will go up in smoke because i highly doubt that amp is stable to 2.67 ohms bridged. also dare i ask what kind of box they are in?
