    Is my stock electrical capable?

    I'm going to be running a Flatlyne Incriminator 12 inch sub @ 1 ohm of an Soundqubed Q1-1200 (4 awg) and a Clarion XC1410 @ 80 rms 2 ohms on the fronts.

    My Acura MDX is equipped with a stock 130 amp alternator and my battery is only 1 year old and is the gold series from Advance Auto. Am I pushing it? If so is it ok to just dial back the gain on the Q1 to like 800 rms? The sub is rated for 750 rms.

    just do the big 3 and your set, that would easily handle what your throwing at it.

    Re: Is my stock electrical capable?

    My 2001 Lincoln Continental has a 140 amp alternator and at night even with HID headlights I get no dimming. I'm running 1600W RMS with 2 gauge wiring, front battery is ~6 months old with a XS Power D680 in the trunk. Voltage never gets below 13V with the engine running and never below 12 with the engine off, used to dip to 10-11V with a 5 farad capacitor and 600W RMS. You should be golden, and if you do get dimming just pick up a little XS Power battery like I did for $120.
