I run a Rockford 201S and a Rockford 801S. But I run a 1 farad cap too though. That helps out and my lights doesn't dim at all.
so is that around 1000 watts? rms?

If you dont want light dimming get a yellow top but also...buy effecient amps. An amp with good effeciency and I forget what its called...when they put out set amount of watts at a specific voltage. I cant remember but here is an example and maybe someone can spit out the term

My xtant 1001d, puts out 1000 watts....at like 11.4 volts....14 volts....17 volts. My RF BD 1000 puts out more watts the higher the voltage goes...therefor draws more power and causes the lights to dim alot more than my xtants ever did.
term = regulated power source

i guess i need to bite the bullet and get a bigger alt :flame:
