Ok so I have a bone stock 2004 mazda 6, 2.4 and I need some help real bad. So I had a previous car that I had a small 10 inch sub in, real simple set up and now that I have a new car and more room I want to upgrade. I have someone that was basically giving away 2 kicker comp 03cvr124 dual voice coils in a sealed box and a Sony xplod 1100 watt xm-d500x, and I was wondering if my stock 90 amp alternator would push that amp. I was thinking about getting a capacitor to go along with the amp to help my alternator. So my main question is is that amp enough for the speakers 03CVR124: 12" 4-Ohm Dual Voice Coil Comp VR

03CVR124 Features and specifications:

mica-filled polymineral cone

Santoprene rubber surround

dual 4-ohm voice coils for wiring flexibility

frequency response 25-500 Hz

power range 50-400 watts RMS (200 watts RMS per coil)

peak power handling 800 wattsand would it be OK to run all of this off of the stock alternator

Sony Xplod Mono Amplifier, Model XMD500X


1100W max power

250W x 1 RMS into 4 ohms, 20Hz - 100Hz at 0.2% THD

500W x 1 RMS into 2 ohms, 20Hz - 100Hz at 0.6% THD

Class D

Variable 50-300Hz Low Pass Filter

40Hz EQ boost

Line level through-put

MOSFET output stage & power supply

RCA & speaker level inputs


Circuit system: Class D Technology

Power supply: Pulse

Maximum outputs: 600 W (at 4 ohms)

Maximum outputs: 1100 W (at 2 ohms)

Rated outputs (at 14.4V): 250 W (20 - 100Hz, 0.2% THD, at 4 ohms)

Rated outputs (at 14.4V): 500 W (20 - 100Hz, 0.6% THD, at 2 ohms)

Frequency Response: 5 Hz - 300 Hz (±3dB)

Harmonic distortion: 0.04% or less (at 100 Hz, 4 ohms)

Input level adjustment range: 0.3 - 6V (RCA pin jacks), 1.2 - 12V (High level)

Low-pass filter: 50 - 300 Hz, -12 dB/oct

Low boost: 0 - 10 dB (40 Hz)

Inputs: RCA pin jacks, High level input connector

Outputs: Speaker terminals, Through output pin jacks

Speaker Impedance: 2 - 8 ohms (stereo)

Power requirements: 12 V DC car battery (negative ground)

Power supply voltage: 10.5 - 16 V

Current drain: 62 A (at 2 ohms, rated output)

You'll be fine, don't do any other upgrades. If the alternator fails then make he investment on additional parts. I doubt you'll have a problem.

My 06 held up to 1200w fine with no big 3 or anything so youll be fine. And that person was giving that away because you can only wire the 2 subs into 1 or 4 ohms so youll have to run the amp at 4 ohms since it is not 1 ohm stable. I suggest get a different amp that is 1 ohm stable
