    Wondering if new deck will = loss of power

    I'm planning on getting the Alpine CDA-9835 and it's supposed to take a lot of juice. Because of it's built-in amp it needs to be wired directly to the battery. Will a powerful sound system lead to a noticable decrease in acceleration and such?

    thanks,
    Daniel

    The 9835 is rated @ 26x4 watts. Which is very modderate . you wont have to wire the deck directly to the batt.

    That deck requires a power cable run to the bat directly. I would sugest listening to the instructions. The wireing harneses in cars were not ment for a heavy amp draw. While that wattage does not sound like alot, that deck will clip if you dont feed it enough juice. You also run the risk melting the wireing harness.

    And no you wont slow your car down, lol.

    The 300 pounds of subs will, if thats what you choise to do

    yeah definitely wire it directly to the battery with a heavier gauge wire and an amp in line. i doubt the deck alone will dim your lights, but that is the only effect a system your car would ever have. you're probably going to need to be pushing a lot more wattage before that happens though.

    Thanks for all the responses guys!

    I wanna get the Alpine v12 301 amp to power my one infinity perfect 12" sub and the Alpine v12 540 to power my speakers. I'm getting the infinity perfect components for the front and some cheap 5 1/4" infinities in the back. Sound like a good setup? What are some popular places to mount the amps and my one sub?

    Appreciate it,
    Daniel

    yes, a fuse in line not an amp

    prspect--you should contact djdilliodon on AIM to talk to him about your options. he is an authorized dealer for a lot of great companies including alpine, and he might be able to help you find the best setup for your budget. i havent ordered anything from him yet but he has taken the time to discuss my options with me. he has better prices than any other authorized dealers too . his email is islandsound1@yahoo.com . i dont work for him or even know him personally, but he is just reputable on the car audio forums i've seen and seems like a good guy.
    i was looking at infinity at first also, but found a lot of other choices from lesser known companies that are considerably better and considerably cheaper as well.
