    HELP! what do i need...

    i plan on running 4 12in 3013ps @ 1 ohm off a powerbass xa1500...

    i have a 140amp alt [stock]
    zero gauge power and ground
    12gauge spk wire
    an optima yellow top
    batt. is located in trunk so a short run...

    will this electrical system support that set up?

    Get the Big three done in 0ga, and I think you may be fine/border line depending on what vehicle it is, and stock amperage alt you have.If you havent bought that optimus batt yet..FYI I recommend a different batt.I had 4 BNew Redtops dump on me last summer as well as runining an expensive alt in the process due to the batts.Look at an XS, or DieHard Plat,Odysee,Orileys Super Start plat AGM, Dekas,ect
