Hey, i have a 2007 honda accord coupe 4 cylinder and i currently have a 900w amp installed powering a sub. Im plannin on switching out that amp for a 1900w amp and using it to power all the speakers as well as the sub. Do you think the battery could handle the amp? Thanks in advance

What needs to handle it is the alternator, and it will. You shouldn't run high powered setups straight off the battery with the car off. It will shorten your battery's life, and your amps on the long run because the battery outputs less than 12 volts.

Thanks for the reply! Ill make sure if I do use it, it would only be when the car is fully on!
