    A good starting battery, maybe a kenetik in the rear. runing 2/0 guage wire. 280 amp alt. Big 3.

    I love overkill

    2 yellowtops should be sufficient.

    don't drop it too low.

    Re: what is needed to run a powerbass xa3000d at 1 ohm daily

    I'm also going to run an XA3000D. I've got an hc800 in the back, 0 gauge, big 3 0 gauge, yellow top under hood, and deciding on what to get for an alternator. I saw the best iraggi alt puts out 165 amps idle and 240 amps max, would that be able to get me around 13.8v, or no? I can spend about $400.00 on an alternator.
