i run stock alternator with 1200W for my sub+speaker amps with a 2farad cap.
i'v upgraded amp grounds and its SO much better.
lights blink very lightly for me.
im going to do big3 and im 100% sure there wont be a need for a new alternator in my case.

i dont see a point of getting a new alternator for this guy either...

its just a matter of time until an overloaded alt will die. they`re not designed to take that kind of abuse. its more a matter of reducing its life buy 50% or more!

says the 550wrms X 2 gives 1100watt because of the 50-60% efficient, then divide by 12, = 91.67amp, most music stays 1/3 of the maximun power, so 91.67/3= 30.5amp, then the amp needs constantly 30.5amp right? The alt rated amperage is 80amp, but rated amp may means idle amp like a guy said in the previous post. .
If sometimes the bass tone require sum high current demand in a burst, a cap should help on alt, cuz it feeds what the amp needed in a short burst time isnt it? Is a cap discharge rate same as charge rate?
.

|||A cap will save your battery and alternator by charging when there is no bass and discharging when the amps need more power gain than the alternator can provide. This is how is saves your eletrical system.|||

to continue this arguement is pointless. honestly, what i know about alternators you can fit on the head of a pin compared to guys that are in the business. contact them for the expert advise.

the entire purpose of this thread/forum is to offer opinions to help one another, i hope this doesn`t turn into a pi$$ing contest.
