    I have a 1995 4-door Metro LSI. I don't know how many amps the battery puts out but I'm sure its not a lot.

    I just bought a Tempest 15" w/ a Sub Zero 2.5 ft. sealed box and I'm planning on buying a JBL 600.1 amplifier. I was wondering if my car will be able to power it effieciently. The 600.1 is a Class D and I bought it because I figured it's more effiecient than a "regular" amp and it wouldn't suck as much power from my car. I don't really have a whole lot of money so I'm hoping this will work out fine. Haven't got the amp yet so I can't hook it up. If you need to know my CD player is a Pioneer DEH P6000 (I didn't think u needed that info but wanted to be safe). Thanks =0)

    I'm not getting a 15" to put a million watts in it and be ghetto. I wanted it for the low end. I got the Tempest because it's not really an SPL sub. If I wanted a 1200 watt 15" I would have bought a Brahma (sp?). Anyways, back in high school I was all about having a system that made my eyes water when the 12's in the bandpass hit. My music tastes have changed since then and I listen to more elctronic stuff like drum n bass than I do rap. I just can't wait to get my amp and hook this shizz up. Oh yeah.. fuse recommendations? I had a 60-amp fuse when I had my two 12's. Should I just buy a 60-amp again. What guage wiring 8 or 4?

    If someone could help me that would be cool:wavey:

    Definetly use 4 guage wire. As for the fuse, check your amps usermanual to see how much amps it draws and pick accordingly.
