Well, ask yourself this question: Where does all the electrical power in my car come from?

If you say battery, then you are wrong. If you said alternator, then you have just answered you own question.

It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

If you looking at a true 2500WRMS, I would be looking at a 250-300 amp alt, and 2 batteries. 1 under the hood and 1 close to the amp.
