didnt want to start a new topic so i'll ask here. I upgraded my alternator to battery wire, and my negative battery wire to chassis, but not my engine to chassis. will my alternator not charge like it should? it seems to run fine but when i play long bass songs it drops to 11 volts. i have a 200a HO alt, running 2 jl 1000/1. I have a extra yellow top in the back, do i need another?

Thanks for the thread, DYohn. I've referred people here countless times to explain "The Big 3".
I had a question about the choice of wire. Do you guys see any disadvantage to running 2-4gauge wires for the Big 3?
I had 50 ft laying around, and wanted to do it properly. If the wires are the same length, electricity should flow evenly between them both. Any potential dangers with this?
