    Re: gm electrical?

    I used to have a corsica.. 105 amp alt... stood up fairly well to constant full tilt with 1200+ watts plus extra amperage draw from other accessories with an interstate battery and big three done in 4 awg.

    I had a small *** ford with a 130 amp alt and it handled the same setup without the big 3 or interstate....

    Re: gm electrical?

    Im pretty much in the same situation... im pretty close to having my setup ready for install, but my car has a lot of miles on it. So im staving off the purchase of a HO alt to see if its absolutely necessary for my setup. I fear it may be. But even batteries can be thrown in the next ride.

    Re: gm electrical?

    what size was the alt again.. should handle 1600 with big three and upgraded front batt... back batt will overkill it. But your gonna find you need a highs amp... so plan ahead

    My problem is 5k rms

    Re: gm electrical?

    75 amp alt that could not handle 600 rms . My electrical checked out fine when i had it tested. i dont wana do a back batt it would put more a strain on my alt . Ill just get a ho alt and run more rms then. And as far as a high amp my last car i had 2 pa horns off of 400 rms it was sick. just to much highs. so im going for bass. nice front speakers open port in the back that it.

    Re: gm electrical?

    actually just about all the american cars have pretty good electrical. Go get a hyundai or volkswagon which has a 80 amp alt that does about half that at idle then come back here and ***** about american cars having bad electrical. You also have to understand that manufacturers put the bare minimum in the car that it needs to run. American made cars give you a little extra but not imports.

    edit, it was a ****en escort, what really did you expect?
