Asked by Mar 24, 2014 at 09:45 AM about the 1996 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight 4 Dr LS Sedan

Question type: Car Customization

My girlfriend has a 96 Oldsmobile 88 and she wants me to build a sub box for her. She currently has a 800-1000w amp on her current subs. She wants me to build her a box so that she can have 4 subs and I want to know if I could put 2 1000w amps on it without frying the altenator. Or would I have to buy a new altenator?
