    Which company makes the Best H/O Alt?

    I am in the Market and have contacted, DC, Mechman, Tenny, Ohio Generator, and Excessive for quotes. I just don't realy know who offers the best quality, I don't care as much about rated output or price, I care about overall performance and quality. I would be glad to hear you'alls opinions

    ive been looking at 270a alts if it helps

    HU: Pioneer PRS-80 w/ a JL Audio Linedriver

    Sub Stage: ORION HCCA 15.4 in 5.5 cubes @ 28 hertz (SOLD IT, Looking for replacement)
    Front Amp: Infinity KAPPA 5 (5 Channel)
    Sub Amp: needs repalcement
    Power: Mechman 270A alt, Diehard advanced gold agm (775 CCA, 55AH) Diehard platinum agm (930 CCA, 75 AH), and I'm buying some 2/0 Welding cable to redo my big three and rerun the entire car

    DC 270xp is a very strong alt. Been running one on my altima for 4+ years. One on my van is going on 3 years, never had an issue with either one. Altima alt has logged around 50k miles so far....

    Re: Which company makes the Best H/O Alt?

    i love ohio generator. extremely good customer service, the alt i got was for a mercedes benz 560sec. it has been a two year chore to find a company that makes high output alt for my car. those other companies either didn't offer the alt or the one they had was a beefed up stock one that burned out in a few weeks, i even had a company sell me a stock alt from a later model car with a smaller pulley on it to overrev the power band to get me close to 200 amps(a meltdown waiting to happen) and it didn't fit like they said it would. it threw the belts on the highway!!! ohio not only got me a 270-300a alt but they retro fit the spacers so it would fit my car. all i had to do was grind about 1/16" off because my brackets were slightly different. not only that but i got a certified birthsheet that shows the power output at different rpm's. i woud go there for all my alt needs from now on!!

    My DC 270XP is great. Strong eletrically, and built extremely well. Build times tend to be long, but worth the wait. They tend to be slow answering emails, but they provide great assistance when they do.
