    install a 17V alternator, run a seperate 17V battery, and basically make a completely isolated circuit from the rest of the vehicle...that runs at 17V.

    The previous poster is correct, if you run 17V through your vehicle's stock wiring, bad things will happen...but if you make it electrically isolated from everything else, you're good.

    You wont get 17v without a modified electrical system, and its not going to happen in a daily driver with working electrical components without a lot of work.

    you don't mod your existing system at all. . . you make a new system for your audio all byitself.

    In all honesty...if you are asking how to do it, you shouldn't do it. You can easily destroy your cars electrical by doing this.

    Re: how do i get 17.0v to my amps?

    dont you remember every one telling you how to do 2 alts in your car about a week or 2 ago? just add your 17V alt somewhere on the axis of your belt, put your belt on it somehow, run your pos wire to the 17V battery, probably in the back somewhere. now ground the alt and the battery to the frame. run your amps directly off the 17V bat. i think thats about it,but i may be leaving out a few small details somewhere but i can't think of them. remember DO NOT hook up this battery to ANYTHING else on your car cept the 17V battery and the amps. if you do your ***** will prolly catch fire!
