since this amp is a two channel then it is technically a clas a/b amp correct? therefore this means it would draw more current when compared to a class d amp of the same wattage?

what would be needed to feed this amp? i have seen some go for pretty good prices. i only have a 240 amp alt on my car, do you think that would suffice with an additional battery or two?

2 channels doesn't make it A/B it makes it a 2 channel amp. A B D are just classes of amps.

Class d is much more efficient.

Do the big 3 and get one big extra battery.

Before you do any of that though your gonna need subs that can handle 4 kw . Because if you are only realistically putting out 2 kw you really aren't going to need the extra battery unless you are going to be doing a lot of bumping with the engine turned off.

ive used MA before.

1.) your going to need a shit ton of electrical to run it. Those amps are current hogs.
2.) those amps are also rated @ 17V, so even if u had 0 voltage drop and very very minimal impedance rise, you still wouldn't get anywhere near the amps power ratings.

3.) overall you still cant be the amp for the price. if this is going to be for a daily system, then you can't go wrong. Just build the proper electrical for the amp and you should be good to go.
