I have already done the big 3 except for the
"piece of 4ga wire from the top post negative terminal of the battery to alternator hold down bolt "

Will it make a difference?

Does anyone have a picture of there setup?


I have 2 L7 Kickers,a 2400w kole audio amp,
1000w Dhd 4ch amp
,epicenter
,eq,
3.0 cap
and my lights are dimming real bad Shocked
Do I have to get a bigger alternator?

If the dimming is really bad, an alternator is probably needed. I don't thing the one wire will make that big of a difference, its more for minor dimming and minor improvement.

dude, how you are running all that power on the stock alt. Im surprised you can drive at night! I have 1350w and i dim like crazy, although i still have not yet to do the big 3.

I think a newer higher out put alt is in your future.
