Nope. I had a VYII and the standard alternator worked fine. What's with all the shouting anyway?

Yeah, but yours was a V8 wasn't it Reaper? Perhaps the V6 isn't up to the task, can't overcome the power drain, especially WHEN ITS BOGGED DOWN WITH EXTRA WEIGHT!

I would think that the power requirements of the system would work on the combined power of the amps not the speakers.

A lot of people are running much more powerful systems than that but don't have a problem. Maybe it is your alternator but not because of your sound system, but because its just stuffed. Maybe get it tested.

Good point. But then again the V6 should be powerful enough to turn the alternator I would have thought. All he needs to do is get a bananaback to tow the car from car park to car park so it can look cool.

If you posted in a way that had at least some respect for the readers I would never have posted in this thread.

i dont think i was direspectful i put it in caps to draw attention as i am feed up with this problem and needed the help of other who may have had similar problem (i didn't know this was shouting)

and i through i would put in all the speaker sizes to avoid more questions to speed things up

if anything i think you were disrespcful
