Default Voltage question

Alright well I'll just come right out and ask it. Is there a way that I can have my Bonnie sitting at 14 Volts at all time? After I fix the electrical issues that I'm having, I would like to install the subs I have for the few months I have left with my car. I just need to know how I can have her sitting at 13.5-14 volts at all times. I don't want to kill her by the bass pounding. I have 2 12" Sundown Audio SA-12'* and an AQ1200D. Other than the big 3, what else would I have to do?

That'* normal to be sitting at 14v.

If I may suggest, before going and adding any other power hungry electrical items, you should really find out why your system voltage is dropping to 5-6 volts as you have posted in your other thread.

No I know. My voltage never sits at 14v. That'* where I would like for it to sit. lol

No I know, that'* why I said after I fix the problems I'm having now. I'm not looking to kill her. Lol. I have posted a list of things to check in the other thread that I will check this weekend. After the problems are fixed, then the subs will be added.

But until then, any suggestions on what I can do to have my voltage constantly sitting at 13.5-14v?

Let'* work on your other thread first. Once we get your voltage stable, then we can come back here and work on adding your amplifier.
