Need to upgrade my alternator!

5506 Views 7 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Benznoob26
I've just purchased a 12" 4000 watt RMS competition subwoofer for my car. Problem is because of the massive amount of power it's putting out, I'll need to upgrade my alternator to feed it.

Is it poissible to modify my existing alternator to put out more power?

Or does someone know of a replacement that would be suitable?

This is the sub if anyone's curious... the almighty STROKER ! :cool:

You wind it with bigger wire. But you have to know something about the electronics. Best plan is take it to an electric motor rebuilder. Try your diesel truck service place they will know who rewinds motors.
