Which alternator is that? I know they have several models.
And why the pully? Did it come with the alt?

Just think you could put a major convertor in there and run your house when you have a outage. smile.gif
Or AC when ya go camping

I'd love to know this as well.

The stock alt has trouble with just putting the damn lights on and even without the lights it can't power the stock HU correctly since the faster I go, the louder it gets.

I am using a DC Power 270XP. I have been working with DC Power now for +6 months on developing this alternator for this car. We had a bunch of issues but finally have it figured out thumbsup.gif

I am using an idler pulley because I was have belt slip issues due to not enough belt wrap around the alternator pulley. DC Power will be shipping this alternator for this car with an idler pulley thumbsup.gif The belt slip was not due to a loose belt. The 270XP is a beast of an alt and when it is under a load it takes alot of torque to turn. With the stock setup there just isnt enough belt wrap.

Stock alt is a Valeo 90a@13.8v unit. Really inst enough power for what I am doing whistle.gif

clap3.gif It is a 270XP. On average voltage is 14.7v. I am really surprised I havent fried the stock ECU yet unsure.gif I do get some nasty voltage spikes at 15.3v for a split second once in a while. My 3kwp doesnt handled clipped signals well nodno.gif (A few decaf tracks are clipped).




I wasn't too sure if anybody on this forum was going to be interested in my build. It looks like a few of you are Peace.gif I will keep you guys updated. I have hours upon hours of work yet to do until this build is complete.

FYI my system goal is to have a good sounding front soundstage that images well and a sub bass system that has the potential for +150db burps quote.gif


Here are a few more pics of whats going on takepicture.gif

My current sub, an XCON 15


I solder, crimp and use heat shrink and PET on my power runs


Left side engine ground


Under battery tray ground


Battery ground on right side of engine bay


I ran my 1/0 + and - through the "frame rails" to the trunk. Here is the 1/0 runs entering the rails from the engine compartment


1/0 runs coming out of the "frame rails"


1/0 in the trunk



Some in process wiring pics




I solder and heat shrink everything including head unit connections (head unit ground is at battery)




Pic of rear battery before I made the connections


I make my own RCA cables








My beloved solder station sarcastic-looky.gif

With the single 15 I have now I guess high 130's low 140's. I am only running about 1800wrms to it. Once I get my two 12's in I should be high 140's easy. They will see 2000wrms each.

I have two batteries. One underhood and one in the spare tire well. Bith are XS Power D3400.

Thanks for the comments!
