    Most of the people here just search the internet or parts stores. They find 150 - 200+ amp alternators. You just have to know where to look.

    I am currently looking into getting one of the irragi alts.

    Re: how do you run big systems

    most stock alternators on new cars are actually fairly strong. i was definitly clearing 2k watts in my truck in my previous setup and it got a tiny little flicker in the lights when the bass hit.

    Dual alts, extra batts, lots of wire.
