    Icon7 Will this be to much to handle????

    I currently have 3 alpine 15s dual 4 ohm and 1 Alpine 2000w class D mono amp. They kill my battery when it hits hard but i have a 10 farad cap on the way that should eliminate that. My question is i want to add 2 more of the alpine 2000w amps is it possible to add them to the 3 subs i have or should i just go with 1 more,or...........put 1 more,get another sub run 2subs on each amp at 4ohms (1500w rms) im a little confused on what to do i want to stick with the alpine amps instead of going with a 1ohm stable amp (really dont want a mixed up system) I am currently pushing the hell outta those 3 15s with the 1 amp running at 2.6 ohms or close to it anyway but i really want to flex the glass lol i dont want to go with a 20000 watt system but i do want to have some serious bass at least enough to pull a hair trick lmao! Any help or info will be greatly appreciated.

    Are you sure the cap is wired correctly?

    So you want to have three amps to wire to four subs? Might as well run four amps and four subs, that way you could run the amps at 2ohms each and get 2k each out of them. Anyway, time to go to bed.

    That cap you have on the way will ease the pain your battery's going through but it will help fry your alternator when you keep cranking the volume up. You need to hit up Google and find a high current alternator, and get at least one secondary battery for the amp. Especially since you want to add 1 or 2 more amps, additional batteries and a high current alternator are a must. You are going to be pretty far from doing any hair tricks if you don't have lots of current on tap.

    So you have 1 single amp, and that kills your battery....
    and you are plan on adding 2 or 3 more amps of equal size, and you are hopping a capacitor will help?

    You will need a much more powerful alternator.
