can anybody make a program where we can put in the amount of batts, alternator size, and Power consumed by amplifiers to show how your electrical will stand up before you Build or start to buy??? or is there anything like this if so i have not found. i figure it will help answer some questions that come up a lot.

Well there is an issue with this... This calculator can only give you a general idea of what your system can handle. As we all know there are MANY variables in the real world:
Such as true RMS your sub/front/rear stages are seeing at various volumes/freq... The actual efficiency of the amp over what your told (such as if your running at 2 ohms the amp may be 10% more efficient then 4 ohms)
There are many different scenarios as well. Such as the variances in how batteries are rated. So as you can see this method, although a great general prep tool, is very limited and can't show you what you actually will see in the real world.
One of the most important building blocks in car audio is the electrical. Many that know me have seen me preach that in posts. With a solid electrical everything from stock to aftermarket benefits.
I'm tossing an excel file together to figure this. It will be crude in the beginning but I hope to have corrections from members here and things worked out so it can be used for general purposes.
