Try using the "ENTER" key every now and then.

Makes it much easier to read your post.

3,400 watts will need apx 280 amps

You should look for a 300 amp alternator.

Someone else will need to chime in about the batteries as I have no experience using them.

270 would get the job done with the added batteries.

As for the sub stage and amps...that all depends on your budget..also make sure budget wire/enclosure(or materials if you build it yourself).

As for sound deadening, I would look into Audio Technix which is a vendor on the forum.. CLICK HERE >>>>>>>> Audio Technix

Excessive amperage.. 200 amp for $410 shipped. If your running 1ohm or higher its all you need.

You don't have room in the stock cargo area for the much...limited to 3 10s or 2 12s in most cases...I could be wrong though.

A 200amp alt with a decent battery setup will be fine.

why don't you spend the money on your kid? just keep the subs off while he's in it. permanent hearing damage is easier with younger ears.

/serious comment

i agree a 200A alt will help a lot and probably be sufficient. you won't be drawing 3kW all of the time, most of the time you'll draw much less. it really depends on the amp you get and what you listen to. extra batteries in hatchbacks are a hassle given the need to secure and vent them. make sure everything is well secured, you don't want projectiles.

cool. we get all types, i have to cover the bases. //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/smile.gif.1ebc41e1811405b213edfc4622c41e27.gif

H.O. alt and a battery or two (depending on size) should have you covered. 1/0 wiring for all, i'd even consider running a 1/0 ground or two to the front given how cheap the steel is on the Scion.
