Aftermarket Radio questions Help!

I just purchased a set of alpeine e series tens and a 400W coustic amp. $250.00...Is that going to effect my alternator??? My Celi is an 02 Gt. Was that a good price you think??

The price looks good thumbsup As for the drain on your battery, I wouldnt worry about it to much. But, if you feel the need just buy a capacitor or a better battery thumbsup

A capacitor doesn't increase the capacity. The cap just stores energy so it can help the battery when needed. And the cap flattenes the voltage when playing music with lots of bass. Because of very low bass the voltage will slightly alternate.

i also wouldnt worry about the voltage..400 volts really isnt that much.

and ditto on the price...that sounds like an excellent deal. did you buy them brand new?
