    Question Needs help with power supply, Please

    Hi everyone... I have a US 2000 amp pushing 4 IDQ15s. I have a Optima red top under the hood, a yellow top in the back ... Someone told me I might need some caps. Please tell me if I need some caps in addition to the yellow top...
    And I was told I need a new aftermaket Alternator. US 2000 amp is 2000 X1 Watts RMS@ 2 ohms Bridged. Can I use a 200 Amps alternator, or do I need a 250 amps one? Please help me out... Thank you

    what else are you running? i would suspect you had components and an amp for them that could keep up with 4 15's
