    Looking for a HO alternator for 03 CTS

    I need help finding a HO alt for a 03 Cadillac CTS with the 3.2 liter v6. I have tried several places but everyone says it cant be done. I wiil be running a 06 HIfonics XX Colossus II (3200 RMS)for sub, a Hifonics XX Jupiter (650 RMS) on components. Electrical will be 2 kinetic 2400s isolated by a relay from a main battery(undetermined what Brand/Size) in the front. Thanks in advance.

    Re: Looking for a HO alternator for 03 CTS

    Why the relay? Remove that and you probably will not need an upgraded ALT. The additional battery capacity will cover the slack unless you plan on running the system full tilt every second the car is running with all the accessories on......

    Re: Looking for a HO alternator for 03 CTS

    The relay will only isolate the aux batteries from the starting battery when the car is not running. When the engine is running all 3 batteries wil be connected. Even with all 3 batteries they will only help out to around a little over 12 volts, right? Anything over that the alt will have to supply. So to stay at 14 I would need an upgraded alt unless the stock one would keep up. My car has alot of electronic acc in it from the factory. If you all think the stocker would handle it let me know. I just dont want to take any chances. Thanks.
