    Icon33 Alternatives to a HO Alternator

    I have a 2007 Monte Carlo LT. Nobody I have found makes a high output alternator for my car. The local alternator place says that they can't make mine better(I'll see if there is another one to try). So I am now looking at alternatives to a better alternator. The alt place says that an additional battery and caps is what I want. I will be running a Fi BL18 on a ppi BK1800.1d. Help me caraudio.com, you're my only hope!

    There is a HO alt for the SS version of my car, but that is a 5.3L V8, mine is a 3.5L V6. Are there universal alts? maybe that would work. I don't know but I was so psyched for this upgrade and now it's starting to look like I can't. Thanks for the help

    i can almost gaurantee that they make a high output for your car. ^^^^ i would go singer first and if they cant than try mechman. i run mechman and wish i would have gotten a singer. it does its job but has been a pain in my *** more than once

    @SirPudge

    I've built an alt for your motor before. Definitely not a problem or an alt that can't be done.

    Re: Alternatives to a HO Alternator

    If the alt is a no go look into ultra/super capacitors, specifically a bank of six maxwell 3000F 2.7v caps. BUT MAKE SURE YOU READ, READ, READ ALL THE INFO YOU CAN before deciding to use them

    Re: Alternatives to a HO Alternator

    So you are only trying to run 1800 plus your component amp? Before you drop $469 on a HO alt why don't you buy a bigger battery or two and be more than happy with a lot more money in your pocket. This website is full of very useful info but more often than not people trying to make a buck. Once upon a time, I needed a HO alt at $469 to run my 4000 watt system. A few batteries later I am running 4k at 14.8 all day. Don't fall for it. Save yourself the money. Unless of course you are competing. And then upgrade everything.

    I agree, im running 2k plus a 1k midbass amp and a 600w tweeter amp and has no ho alt running 180ah batt and it keeps my voltage at 14.0, i have to use a charger once in a while specially before a show but your load might not require an ho alt

    Re: Alternatives to a HO Alternator

    Do you usually run these kinda high? I don't compete but I like it loud(maybe I don't know what I'm in for with this sub) and would be bumping pretty regularly

    Re: Alternatives to a HO Alternator

    i bump regularly who doesn't lol but you need to get a baseline of what your voltage is first, get a volt meter and attached it to your sub amp and see what voltage your sub amp gets when your bass hits

    Re: Alternatives to a HO Alternator

    What do I attach it to on there? Power and ground? I don't have one at my house right now and will be leaving for errands soon, but when I have time I'll go to my grandpa's shop and use one of his.
