    New Sub setup... Questions

    Right now i have two JL Audio Subs that are descent. But I plan on getting two Alpine SWR-12D2 12s that are 1000W RMS each and pairing them with two JL audio JX1000/1D which are 1000W RMS each. I planned on doing two Caps and an Optima Yellow Top battery... Is this going to be enough or do i need additional equipment?

    At the very least 2 batteries, big 3, and a dead minimum of 240a alternator. Drop the caps, 95% of the time they are practically useless.

    this is more realistic, and this will be way way way way better than your JL audio setup

    Yeah he's running 2 1k RMS amps, so roughly 139 amps. 240a is actually pretty close to ideal in his situation.

    Different amps have totally different draw.

    I understand that, 2000W/14.4V=138.89a, that's assuming a completely 100% efficient amp which is impossible. Again, why I said a dead minimum of 240a alt.
