    Icon33 big question about my system

    ok i have a big problem, i am putting a Sony XPLOD CDX-M630 for a reciever that puts out 52x4. i am also replaceing the 51/2's in the front and the 6x9's in the back. Now the 6x9's put out 800 watts each. i am also putting in a 10 that has a 400 watt amp and the sub handles 400. But i would only use it at 300. so the problem is that i dont know if i should hook up the amp to the battery or the alternator. But i dont know how much amps my alternator can handle. i have a 97' monte carlo and i have no clue what to do. what would be the best thing.

    I you are asking whether to hook your amp up directly to the battery or to the alternator, always hook an amp up the the battery.
