Default Need help on my electrical

Hey guys, im planning to run two 12" Fi Q's, with a Hifonics BXi2607D Amp. The Car that i have is a 2005 toyta camry 4 door and everything is stock, and i think my alternator is around 80-100amps, not really sure. but my question is will i be able to run this amp with a kenetik hc 1800 in the back? and a stock battery in the front? my idea was to run 0/1awg Wire from the alternator to the battery, and then 4awg from the front battery to the rear battery, then 0/1awg from the rear battery to the amp, will this work?

you have to think of your charging system as a series circiut my friend. heres what you need to do...if you are going to run 1/0 cable anywhere, then run it everywhere.
You need to go to www.highoutputalternators.com and go to ricks tech center, then figure out how much amperage you are going to draw. if you are going to draw more than ur factory alt, you also need to look at an upgrade there, becuase i am suspecting this is going to be a daily driver setup. next, get nice battery and ground terminals, and when connecting your wires, also use solder so that you dont get voltage drops.

From your factory battery, redo your ground straight to the frame with 1/0. from your engine block, run 1/0 straight to the frame, from your battery in the back and ur amp, run 1/0 straight to the frame.(remember not the the cab or trunk area because that is sheet metal, and the entire Car is mounted on rubber bushings, not directly to the frame).

for your power wires, run 1/0 everywhere. from your alt to both batteries. if you did ur plan, and ran 1/0 from the alt to the front battery, then went to only a 4 ga to run to the back.. thats defeating the purpose of the 1/0 to begin with.
also, you may want to take ur remote wire going into ur amp, and run it into a relay first, that way u can run a wire straight from your main power (battery) into ur amp(better output) and use the signal (blue remote amp turn on) to flip the relay on and off.

thats my oppinion, but Im still a noob lol

it would be pointless to do the big 3 in 1/0 then only run 4 gauge to the back.

run 1/0 throughout, you should be fine with that setup. If not just buy another 1800 (or however big you can fit) for under the hood.

what he said...try big three in all 1/0 and a run of 1/0 + and - connecting all bats and see how it works(knu koncepts flex cable of course). If your voltage goes to low consider a high output alt before your amp goes up in smoke.

if the run of power wire from the second batt to the amp is short then u can use 4ga for it...but besides that use 0ga throughout....and try the deka intimidators instead of the hc1800...there cheaper
