So our old 50x4 amp finally bit the farking dust and I am considering upgrading to a JL e6450 6 channel to power the cabin and sub speakers, the bows will stay on the HU, they usually have fatsack over them anyway.
My 02 SANTE has two batteries and a 55 0r 65 amp alternator. We are not loud listeners, but I want a clean amp that powers everything properly instead of wiring the 4 speakers in 2 series like before. All should be 4 ohm loads.
If I keep the gain down on the channels will the amp still draw major power?? Or does it still draw a large amount just by being on??
I am just a bit worried about straining the alternator and causing problems with the electrical system in general. I want clean, not necessarily loud although I like some volume.
input is greatly appreciated.
