I recently posted this on another forum and all I have recieved was "good eletrical isnt cheap dont waste your money buy this brand alt" While I appreciate the guys answer it isnt a option that is feasible due to time restraints.
I've been out of the industry for a little over ten years so I'm not exactly a noob but I could use some help getting up to speed.
Short of strapping a generator on the roof what are my options?I am thinking dual alts and maybe a over drive pulley.
What is involved in running dual alts?I can handle the brackets and pulley but how do you go about wiring it all up?
Lastly this is on a build outside of the US and budget is a factor.I can easily source 150amp oem units and 200-250 amps will do but with the needed overhead and hot output 300-350 is better.So if I'm going to be fabricating it seems logical to go dual vs a 350'ish amp universal that would be VERY expensive to get here,price+ aprox 100$shipping and aprox 30% tax on alt and shipping for a mechman or aprox 40-60$ for a good used oem + fab is more attractive.If we need more there is a factory 200 or 220 IIRC amp from another model that we could grab 4 to 5 of new for the price of importing a mechman,stinger etc etc.
By the way the car is Audi B5 RS4 Avant that once box designs are done and tested we'll be trying to do a prepreg carbon fiber or kevlar carbon mix enclosure when all is said and done.The Subs are 3 of our own design basic 3 slug 10 spoke 12's,3 korean 2k amps and 2 125.4's for highs.
