  1. Hey guys I am going to be installing a second HO alternator in my engine bay. I already have a DC POWER 270amp 14.9 volt. The second is a BOSCH HO 280 amp that is rated at 14.7 volts. My question is this. If I wire both alts in parallel will the two unmatched outputs cause issues? If so what would they be with only .2 volts difference? And finally. How can I best avoid issues while still utilizing these alts as efficiently as possible. Thanks in advance!
  2. Hey everyone! i currently have a 2006 Subaru outback that i am installing the following in. Rockford Prime R500X1D 300 Watts x 1 @ 4-Ohms, 500 Watts x 1 @ 2-Ohms, Frequency 20Hz to 250Hz +/-1dB Rockford Fosgate Prime R165X3 Configuration: 3-Way Full-Range Nominal Impedance (Ohms): 4-Ohm Frequency Response (Hz): 52Hz-20kHz Power Handling (RMS): 45 Watts RMS, 90 Watts MAX Rockford Fosgate Prime R165-S Power Handling (RMS) 40 Watts RMS 80 Watts Max Speaker Type Component System Frequency Response (Hz) 60Hz - 20kHz Crossover Tweeter High-Pass (HP): 4.5kHz @ 6dB/octave Nominal Impedance (Ohms) 4-Ohm Rockford Fosgate P2D4-12 Size 12" Power Handling (Watts RMS) 400 Watts RMS 800 Watts Max Dual 4-Ohm Kenwood Excelon KDC-X702 General RMS Power (CTA-2006) N/A RMS Power (Manufacturer) 22 watts Peak Output 50 watts RMS Power Bandwidth 20-20kHz Preamp Outputs 6-channel Sub Preamp Outputs Yes Switchable Rear Preamp Outputs No Video Screen No Preamp Voltage 5 volts I built another kicker system in my Chevy pickup and it was OK at best. SO i have decided to reach out to the pros for help. My questions/ concerns are as follows.... #1 What is the overall opinion of this system and how do you think it will sound? pls keep in mind this is a budget build and i am just looking for some decent sound with bass without blowing my ass off hahahaha. #2 i am worried about my head unit not giving the 2 full range/ 2 component/ 2 inch tweeters enough RMS power so..... should i purchase another separate 4 channel amp to power those? #3 should i replace the factory speaker wire and run 16 or 14 guage wire to all six locations? Please help! any advice is appreciated! I am going to slap this bad mama together this weekend! Thanks in advance!
