2 weeks ago I had a shop install a single 12 JL Audio W3 with a 1000 watt Fosgate amp and 2 farad capacitor.
Install was tied into the stock amp in the trunk.
Now is it just a coincidence that my stock alternator is now fried or did they install something incorrectly or was the setup just too much for the stock alternator to handle?
2006 Lexus Is350.
Just replaced the fried alternator with a new one, question is, do I play my music now or disconnect.
I don't want this problem to happen again, the removal & install on that alternator sucked.
I didn't think one 12 with a 1000 watt amp would pull that much to kill the alternator, maybe it was just time the stock 2006 alternator took a dump or do you think the capacitor may have led to it as I have heard mixed reviews on them having a negative affect on the alternator. Or maybe a bad ground on the install?
Should I do the "Big 3", remove the cap or just take the beat out all together.
Whatcha guys think?
I would have just taken it out...I had subs and all before...takes up trunk space when you already have a small trunk. Plus the stock system is way better than most cars already. Now when I see people with subs driving with passengers, in my head, I'm like, "Man, sucks that you either have to scream at your passenger for them to hear you or you have to turn down your system to talk."
