The install form hell

Hello

my fist install was a flop, both my DEI 2400D amps Fryed and one TS-W5000SPL sub i was pissed. 7 + thousand $$$ down the *******. no idea what happened, low voltage i think. now its a waiting game to get it all running agian.

has anyone had that happen before?


My total system including all the cars extras is about 5000Watts RMS.
i want to use 1 HC1800 up front and 2 HC2400 in the back and keep my current alt.
my stock alt is a 110Amp and im thinking of getting the Kinetik HC-100A 12V Power Supply as well

Call me Crazy

My System is now this

Avic-Z1, Sirius, Bluetooth, Ipod
soon to be 1 ND-BC2 PIONEER UNIVERSAL REAR VIEW CAMERA
Infinity 6010cs 6-1/2 components in the front
Infinity 6012i in the back
Fosgate 3SIXTY.2 Interactive Signal Processor Bluetooth
ROCKFORD FOSGATE T8004 4 Channel Amp
ROCKFORD FOSGATE T40001BD MONO SUB Amp
2 Tview 9" Headrest Monitors with IR headphones
PLVSC44 Multi Audio Video Wireless Switcher System (4 A/V In & 4 A/V Out)
2 Pioneer TS-W5102SPL Subs
50 Farad Cap
soon to be 2 HC2400 ans 1 HC1800 Power Cell batteries

Custom fab if you have to, and running all that stuff plus that RF 4k id go bigger then 200 amp, or dual alt.
but if they put a 110 on it stock im gonna say with heater, headlights radio, plus whatever else is electrical like the computer, ignition and all that your probably pulling just over 90 amps.

Start wanging the stereo and its going to drop voltages "like its hot"

At least do the "big 3" yet?

Ditch the Iso then, And as I asked above have you upgraded power and grounds under the hood?

also do you have a voltmeter thats preferably after market as oem ones pretty much suck.
