    Default Will i get problems? is this to much.

    got a great great deal from a closing down sale.
    and i dont like doing things in half so i baught most of there stock lol

    2 x JBL-GT5a3001e amps
    1 x JBL A604e amp
    4 x JBL GT5 12"
    2 x double custome made 2cf3 boxes (fill the boot of a vectra nicely)
    1 x set of MS 360's 6'9's
    1 x set of ms 280's 4'4's
    3 x wireing kit running from my battery to the front.
    3 x really long phono cables comeing from my stereo
    1 x Sony Explod MP3 (not sure the make)

    just wondering if this can damage anything on the car.?
    reason being is that my lights flash pretty bad and all the dash goes dim
    not personaly bothered about it just worried about damaging something.

    To stop the lights from dimming you will need a power capacitor

    Or you could uprate the alternator and add extra batteries in the boot.

    Running it without some extra help to the electrics will make the battery and alternator you have work harder putting far more strain on it. It must affect the reliability somewhat.





    Is it loud??

    4 subs, 3 amps!! Thats a meaty install you got there, as previously said get some extra batteries, a power cap and a split charger, depending on the output of the amps i would think about uprating the alternator. How much did you pay for that lot?
