Default 60 impala

well for over a year i had a fairly cool system being in low budget i'd say in a car with a 60 amp alternator that is an odd size and would cost a whole lot to upgrade (being a cheap *** i used one battery)
even had an ok sound thought i'd be the one to get away with it karma is laughing at me
and recentaly the constant drain(not small wire just an idiot cranking an amp thats to big for the car) on the alternator burned up the regulator
when it was replaced thee core was black, matte black
looked like choral
and because the voltage drop was so great a few months ago i burned a power supply output out of 2075am ppi(i miss it dearly) it half worked tried to fix it...
the board turned into carbon half shorting and my 120v to 12v power supply shut off finishing something in the amp (i might try and fix it if i had help i don't know about that board though)
so see my i have a 60 impala and when school is out i will be acquiring a job and the time to work on it
i'm redoing the mechanics from rear to front
and the engine will be replaced with a brand new 283
and redoing necessary wiring
so i want a system
i like my old school amps with there power hogging nature they please the ear
but i want to have the car wired right and ready for it so none of this will happen again
any ideas and recommendations i'd rather not like to be pulling over 150 or so amps i want my 12 mpg but not killing amps from undercurrent and the alternator and the car is more importuned
sorry if i sound funny i'm still heated about that whole bit of ruining the amp

What, precisely are you asking for?

Suggestions regarding wiring?

Suggestions regarding amplifiers?

ok i just wasted my typing
i plan total of 5 6 by 9s 2 kick panels and 2 to 4 added tweeters
now i know for the bass i'm useing a orion 2100 hcca the old one operates at about an easy 60 amps can peak at 160 might get another use 2
now i'm not doing it all at once but i want the car ready for that kind of power
as i explained my daily driver had a burnt alternator fuel pumps and it dropped power so low it killed a great 2075am ppi
i don't want any of this to happen to my impala
i expect it to run a lifetime without electrical trouble because of the system

STOP TYPING.
Have you not heard about a wonderfull new invention ?
It's called Punctuation.

All your doing is creating walls of gibberish.

WHAT do you have ?
WHAT do you want ?
Do you want help ? or are you just intent on posting rubbish ?

If you can't construct a few simple, understandable sentences, then I suggest you stay in school and study harder at english.

Sorry if this upsets you, but I'm sick of illiterate red neck hicks that can't string 3 words together and expect everyone to tell them how fix their problems for free.

Please have the moderator remove the comment about rednecks. It's unlikely that you personally know any or know anything about those who fall into that category.

Just let him be. He's ruined himself enough. Just so you know, school readily teaches grammar its based on AIMS and five paragraph essays.
Anyway i have a 60 impala. I had many problems with my daily driver because the car was not able to handle the system ,burned up a beloved amp because of undervoltage. Now i'm replacing the engine in a few months and i want to start doing the system groundwork, by that i mean proper alternator, regulator, batteries, and anything else that can help. I expect to run the car a lifetime, and when i install the system i don't want the power drain from the car causing any more problems

Will the new engine have brackets available to allow the installation of a 160+ amp GM alternator?

If it doesn't have power steering or air conditioning, there should be plenty of space to have brackets built to be able to install any alternator or even multiple alternators.

It may get ac ,but not power steering. I meant what brands and parts specifically that are made to handle the pulsating dc?

I've thought about a small alternator for the car with battery. Then a large with a battery going straight to the trunk. With the grounds shared but, i wasn't sure if that would work as intended.

they should accept a pretty generic cs144 cased alternator, often offered in chrome, and all the way up to more than 200a, before becoming real expensive. may i ask, why a brand new 283? most pre-packaged motors are of the mass-preduction build, and a crap-shoot as to how reliable it is. also, the car may be worth more with a numbers-matching engine. it goes allong with the saying, "built, not bought"
