    A new personal best of 144.2 until I get more battery power for more loudz. Need to find somewhere to get a bigger alternator if anyone knows for the LS1.

    You checked out the Stinger alternators? Pricey I know but they have the goods.

    good point. probably more cost effective than a stinger.

    Also, for the short term, you considered getting the diodes reconfigured. From memory, going to Delta config will see an output of about 15-16 volts....

    Thanks Noddyoz, Just running the 2 Hertz amps, so 2000watts in total, only running front stage and subs no rear fill at all. Still one battery will be upgrading to Intimidator 9A34 soon, but will stay with just one battery.
    I think your talking about the Soundstream cap, Capacitors store a temporary electrical charge that can be released during periods of extra power strain. There are many people who dont think they work, mainly with larger systems, but as i am only running one battery it was a good choice for my setup and seems to be working well so far.

    nice work man . i am searching for good power supply atm that why was interested. not sure capacitor best option.
    i plan to add second battery this week and also have a nvx battery relay on order with few other goodies from sonic . 500amp . .
    bit overkill but best go big then less waste money upgrading later. my last option would be alternator but shouldn't need hopefuly as i also have a PP-AM200010 running my subs. however considering moving away from fusion for the next large upgrade as much as their a great brand still can only offer me 650odd rms. . . . RE audio look more and more possible but big money so ya. will see lol.

    Stinger 8ga power cabling
    Some thin and cheap no name speaker wiring

    Installed and haven't been bothered to touch for years.

    Future upgrades I had in mind for a long time which I hope to do by the end of this year.
    - Put in a capacitor
    - Upgrade the power cabling to something more suitable, maybe 4ga.
    - Some decent speaker wiring.
