    Icon9 How many watts will a 120 amp alternator produce ?

    hi I am about to buy a 120 amp alternator, how many watts will it produce?

    I have a huge current draw in the car, I have 2 amps
    (power acoustik 1600 watt amp for 1 sub.....and 1 power acoustik amp 800x4 for mids and high's)

    Also I have an airbag suspension system, and an underbody neon kit.

    Should I get more than 120 amps ?

    Thanks

    Bigger is better. I would be looking 160A+ for that setup and all the extra stuff you've got.

    Bigger is better as helo stated, I would go as large as is feasable, especially if you plan on further upgrades to the system.



    Yeah, whatever
