So i have decided to step up my game and possibly hit some decent numbers, BUT I am still decently new to car audio compared to most of you guys! I have lots of questions and looking for suggestions, and feedback through this whole process. I am making a check sheet for all the equipment i need but there are so many different ways to go so that is why i am making this thread. Also this build is going to be done over time since i just got this puppy and he will come first, he has medical expenses and i would rather not break the wallet hens the equipment i will be using, mostly budget stuff.
**NOTE THIS IS NOT A BUILD LOG, JUST A PLACE FOR ME TO ASK MY QUESTIONS WITHOUT BLOWING THE PLACE UP SO I WILL KEEP IT ALL IN HERE.**
First of all my setup will consist of:
4- 15" T3 T-600's
2- Soundstream PCC.6N component sets
2- Audiopipe AP1500D's
1- MB Quart DSC4125
Optima Yellowtop D34 under the hood
1. Will I need a Secondary battery to power these amps? If so what battery should i run in the back? (Preferably a optima since i get them for cheap)
2.Would it be necessary to run a HO alt? If so what amp? what brands are good to run? Mechman? Iraggi?
3.As far as wire goes, should i run 3 runs of 4 gauge? Or should i run, 1 run of 1/0 to a distro block and then 4 gauge to the amps from the distro block?
These are just a few questions i have at the moment.
