ok, here is the situation for me.. just found out if i replace the alternator in my mercedes, i will lose the warranty on my car.... i really want the 1000/1, but that would mean getting a new alternator, which by the way, would cost somewhere between $500-$800 for a mercedes... do i have any other options??? would getting a battery isolator and a second battery for the audio be good enough?? also just found out that the optima yellow tops dont fit in the mercedes, so i cant even replace the stock battery... i can, but its gonna be a pain in the ass to find one that fits.. Anybody have any ideas??? Thanx

 
Depending on your listening habits, you might be fine with the 1000/1 and your stock alt. Adding a second battery won't help and may even put you in a worse spot.

Who said that replacing the alt will void your warranty? They can only dishonor your warranty if they can prove that the new alt caused whatever problem that you are trying to get fixed under the warranty. Federal law. As long as it is a good alt, they will not be able to prove that it caused the problem and they must honor the warranty.

 
if i only listen to it at high volumes when i drive, and never when the car is turned off, do you think i will be ok with the stock alternator??
