    What's a good amp for no more than $320 shipped, that will be good to run 2 10" eclipse aluminum subs at 4 ohm, 500watts rms each.... I currently have an mtx 81000d, which hits very hard, but I know it's not even going to potential because they rate their amps and a very high volt level. Is there anything better out there or should I just stick with what I have?

    I would probably stick with the MTX...

    A new battery would not offer any voltage gain, as they all run at 12v. They provide a large source of current though, which could help.

    No, the battery runs at 12v, while the alternator runs at approximatly 14 volts. The reason for this is so that the alternator will be constantly charging the battery.
