How to choose an Aftermarket Alternator for our cars ?
This is primarily WRT Audio Performance Enhancement, there are Aftermarket alternators available by Stinger which go upto 320 Amps, now what are we supposed to keep in mind while buying one for a car like a Zen or a City , I know the fact that vehicles need compatiable alternators for them, any alternator cannot fit into any car.
So what is the deciding factor, how to choose an Alternator for our cars.

LBM, you are right bro, It is going to be loud, planning a DB Drag Setup for this year, here are the goodies ,
1 Hifonics Golaith 5000 RMS Mono amp
2 12" Kicker SoloX subs
Full 0Ga wiring for power, have not decided on the gauge for the subs.
1 1200 Amps Performance battery
Am also fitting speakers for daily use,
3 Sets of Component Speakers, have not decided , budget per set is 20k
2 Rockford Fosgate P4004 4 Channel Amps ( Any better alternatives for SQ ?? )
Also adding a Power Supply unit to charge the battery, mostly 80 Amps.
Now cant decide on the Alternator, the Stock Astra Alternator is definitely not good enough for this setup, so was looking at Stinger.
So anyone knows anything about how to choose the right one ??

Dude if you are really going to do this and drive this car around I'd suggest investing in a dual battery isolator. I am fond of music but not at the cost of being stuck with a dead battery.
a 320A alternator will cost you a lot of mods to the engine bay just to fit it in. I suggest you find someone very competent at this or you are going to have a mess on your hands.

all right then as navin ji suggested go for double or even triple battery setup as ur load will be way above 500 amps. u will be needing to play the system for a short duration in the db drag and not continously so adding a extra battery will do ur job.....
Even I am running a 2500 watts rms system in my car with a single battery to voltage drop is there but it work good if i have to play for short durations....
But if u plan to play it loud for continous 2-3 hours making ur brains wash out then I think u will need to go for a HO alternater.........

Lets see what this turns out to be, it sure will be a monster,
My friend has a SOLOX 18" with 2, KX2500.1 amps, and that is a beast, but its not music to ears, its rather way of getting the wax in your ears come out automatically.
