I could do it. But I like actually having a back seat lol. I was gonna build a box in the bed of my b2300 with a port coming through the rear slider. All would be under the cap. But to much work lol

Not sure if i want a Zv5 12" or two SD-3 12's

Running two slims would let me run at 2 ohm on the 2K (rated 1k, SMD dyno'ed 1.2K) and i would likely never see below 14v with the alt i've got.

Getting a 5 i'd want a dual one ohm to push the amp to the max and that would probably involve swappng out the underhood battery to the back and getting a new one for underhood.

Slims is defnitely the cheaper alternative, but dat ass on the 5's

Unless you already have an AGM upfront I wouldn't add another, big no no to mix battery types

I'd say go for the zv5. Just because you know you'll want to upgrade anyway lol.

Okay. For all the wiring gurus. I've had the big 3 wires for my f150 for a while. I haven't installed them because the terminal is very small. 10mm nut. Are there some terminal ends for 0 gauge wire that are small on the end that I can put it on the alternator? I believe the grounds should be fine? I haven't looked at them yet. Got to the alternator as it was the easiest and gave up lol. My lights are dimming like crazy from the subs and I need to get them in. The lugs I have are 1 inch wide and the hole seems to be about 1/4 inch. Very large.

I miss read what you ment. Lmfao. Amp is doing great. It's mounted on the back wall. There's no fan or anything back there. Idk how hot it's getting. But it's doing great. Never had an issue with it except for when I first put it in. I have to get my back window out. I gotta get the seal put in. It's been raining bad and I'm afraid it's going to get wet.

I'm stuck between it. A used ct sounds 1400.1 ($200 with dual fans installed) and a b-stock sundown sae-1000d for $250 to run my sa12.
