So, I'd like some opinions.
I just picked up a Rockford Fosgate Punch 400-4 for a killer deal, I practically robbed it.
I also picked up Phoenix Gold Rsd 6x9s and 5.25 component set. They are rated for 60 wrms each.
I will be getting all of this shortly.
It says that the amp draws 80 amps. My alternator is stock 105. I do not want to kill it by all means, I have a Grand Am, I know they have a lot of electrical stuff.
Can I also add my JBL amp (Which wants a total of 60 amps) and my alternator being fine?
So a break down. JBL wants 60 amps, Rockford wants 80 amps. JBL puts out 360RMS, Rockford would put out 60 per channel for a total of 240RMS.
So, that is a total of base-line 500watts RMS, but 140 amps.
Which should I follow. I do not want to burn up my alternator, I will however be doing the big three upgrade on this vehicle. My battery is just a regular plain-jane battery.
Basically, what I will be doing for the time being until I can get enough money to buy the subwoofers I want, is run just the 4 channel amp. I know that will be more than enough sound, but I also like the subwoofers to kind of fill it all in you know? Since the lowest that my 6x9s are rated to go is 55hz. That leaves a fair gap in bass, plus 6x9s wont give me the thump in the chest.
I had planned on adding the JBL amp in at a later time. Could I do this without killing my car or having my lights dim or what have you?
Thanks so much
