  • Yeeha?

    Hey, I guess officially, I'm the new kid on campus, but before you get on with the hazing, let me tell you a little bit about my project.

    I own a 1985 Silverado. Got it for really cheap from my uncle two days before my beloved MR2 met its messy fate at the hands of a guard rail.

    I was going to buy another MR2 in short order, but was instead convinced to have a stereo system put in the truck instead, so now here I am, asking questions reguarding the second round of installation.

    I need to know if I'm going to have enough power with the engine idling in order for the system to play its heart out...

    I have a 140amp alternator already in the truck. It produces 80amps at idle. I'm making a conservative guess and saying that the system will be drawing close to 100amps while I annoy everyone within a 100' radius of my truck. I'm just trying to figure out what the best method for delivering the additional power needs is going to be.

    Was thinking about a Kinetik batt. and maybe a cap killer for good measure, but I want some other opinions before I drop $400 on those parts...

    Oh yeah... let the hazing comence?
