I have a Ford 2000 Explorer and am thinking about going with 2 Skar VVX 12's. If I push them at 2k rms, would I need a h/o alternator or just some extra batteries? I might go with one though. Any suggestions on amps to run them on? And I am looking for some good 6x8's to replace my current door speakers.
you might be able to find a good used rockford 1500bd amp or sundown 1500d for pretty cheap. they are great amps that you would be happy with. i ran a sundown 2500 with stock alt and just a single batcap2000 in the rear on a single 12" and pounded it all the time with no issues. so i would say just some extra batteries would suffice with the power you are planning.i would do the big3 in 0 gauge and run 0 gauge throughout.
good rule of thumb is for every 1k watts rms u need roughly 70amps of course depending on the application.....you can run 1500rms or 2krms on stock charging system because with rise im sure u wont be putting out 2krms to them subs but its just a piece of mind thing for me and preventing something from going poof....MOAR POWA
