    What kind of Electrical upgrades??

    Ok im planning on getting 2 HiFonics OLM2415 subs and 2 HIFONICS BXI2010D, Wired down to 1 ohm.

    I currently have 4g wires, JVC-KDR200 HU, stock alt and battery. The car is a 2000 impala if that helps.

    i know i will need 0g wire, but what other electrical upgrades would i need?

    1) Big 3 (search if you don't know what it is)
    2) Add a big AGM battery in back
    - a) Kinetik HC2000 or HC2400
    - b) Deka 9A31
    - c) Stinger / Odyssey 2150
    - d) XS D2700 or D3100
    3) Possibly upgraded alternator, depending on output of stock alt. Should need about a 120A~150A alt to keep up.

    Big 3 and a small-medium size reserve battery. Or Big 3 and a large upgraded main battery.

    Installed one in a 04' Trailblazer with OEM alt, Big 3 and a HC800 Kinetik. Works perfectly, 12.6V is the lowest it got. But i'm not sure of the OEM alts amperage rating, that could be the big factor.

    Stay far away from 16V.

    Trust me, if you are here asking about what you need, 16V is far from the answer.

    Always fuse your wire based on the wire's capacity. So if your wire is rated to 250A, then use a 250A fuse. If it is rated for 125A, use a 125A fuse. It is that easy. If you need to know how much your wire is rated for, check with the MFG of the wire. If the MFG does not specify, look for better wire.
