Default 150 Amp Alternator in my 1991 Baja240 454

I bought this boat last year and finally decided to upgrade my sound system. I started having charging problems and was told it was my alt that i needed more amps. I had trouble finding a high amp alternator untill i came across MEAN GREEN HIGH OUTPUT ALTERNATORS. They are just getting into the boating industry and i sent them my alt and they build me a 150 amp...WOW... For $599 it was worth it its been over a month and no problems.

$600 for an alternator??????????

Run enough of the correct batteries and you shouldn't need it. Keep one battery for starting the boat and run the stereo off the others.

that is exactly the amount of speakers and amps i put in u really think i was ripped off i mean it solved my charging problem
