How far can I get on stock alt?
Hello all, I have a 2012 Kia Optima Hybrid that I am trying to work with. The alternator is a "smart alternator" with dual charging systems, 48v for the hybrid batteries and 12v for the rest. I am still bugging all the high output alternator companies I can find but so far it's either "No" or "Not yet." I currently have a XS Power D3400 and a DC Audio Level 4 10" powered by a DC Audio 1.2K and no BIG 3. Things are fine now, no dimming lights, but I'm not satisfied and have ordered a DC Audio XL 10" and a second 1.2K and am going to strap the amps together to power the single XL sub.
Did I just make a mistake going that far? I am prepared to do the BIG 3 and a second battery if needed (unsure if I should do a D3100 or a second D3400) but I have no way of getting an alternator.
This is a daily driven car so the music will most likely never be played without the car running.
I also have a JL 300/4 Slash for my components.
The 12v charging system in the smart alternator is 110 amp.
Thanks in advance for the help!
