    Lightbulb Pimp My Ride - Where's the power?

    Ok, so I've watched almost every episode of MTV's Pimp My Ride, and I've seen almost everything ever thought of jammed into a car.

    From projectors, tvs and jacuzzis, to 40" plasmas, popcorn makers and fireplaces...

    WHERE DOES ALL THIS POWER COME FROM???

    Something tells me an Opus 150 aint gona handle all this?

    How on earth is this possible, does it require the engine to be running at all times???

    most of it is only for show, inverters and an extra battery for showing off during a couple of minutes...

    haha, i was actually wondering the same thing, i was thinking maybe they put in some beefed up alternators hitting 150amps + . I mean for all the stuff they run it's AMAZING. So either they have beefed up alternators, or cheap invertors and extra batteries which would be really stupid. Or maybe a little of both.

    LMFAO..... it HAS to be a combo of all of it beefy alternator huge inverters and beyond.

    either that or in order to use jacuzzi you have to have the engine running at 12,000 RPM while going a hundred down the highway...all at once!
