Question about 2007 Suzuki GSF 1250 Bandit S

1 Answer

What is the output in watts or amps of charging system?

I would like to add a couple of driving lights to improve visibility at night and was wondering if the charging system would be capable of carrying another 110 watts or roughly 8.5 amps at 13 volts comfortably or if it would cook the windings or regulator. Thanks. John

    Thanks Shag,

    I just can't seem to get any solid numbers for specs from anyone though. John

    sounds to me like it would be better to fit LED bulbs or halogen bulbs that give off a lot more light but dont increase the load on the generator / switches/ wiring. Might cost a bit more initially for the bulbs but generally they last a lot longer than tungsten fillament bulbs so the cost is worth it.

The charging system is usually in amps. Consult your dealer or find the service amp output of the generator or alternator and determine
the amp draw you are using now, then add the 8.5 amps to it. For service live, do not exceed the standard rating.
Good luck,

    John,
    What are we working on? I don't think I ever knew. I am sure I could research it for you. But I would need to know type of vehicle year, make and model. also if it's a generator or alternator.
    Send me the info, and I'll look it up for you...
    Thanks,

Loosing power


You need to add up all of the loads connected to the inverter. A 120watt load at 120 volts equals a load of 10 amps at 12 volts.
Watts= VoltsXAmps.
Add to that any other load on the battery - radio, lights, etc. and the standard vehicle battery will be dead in a short time. You need to either have a bank of large batteries, such as two or three group 27 batteries in parallel, or you need to keep the van running so the alternator can keep the battery charged.

Hi. I want to improve the output of the headlight and considering changing the standard bulb for an uprated output. But what is my best choice? My night riding is needing better illumination ahead and...


Improving the output of the light will only increase the light ahead of you. Having the light spread out wider will require a lense with different angles to spread out the light. If you could find a BOSCH replacement light for your bike, that would be an upgrade other wise, have you considered auxiliary lights? HID lights provide lots of light and the current draw on the electrical system is about 40-50 percent less than that of regular incandecant bulbs. Hope this helps.

I have 2 12 inch jl audio w7's with a kicker crossover and a powerbass equalizer 5 bands. i wanted to know if add a hifonics brutus 2100 d class amp to my subs at 1 ohm would it over power my subs. please...


Short answer: NOPE!

The Hifonics Brutus 2100 is stated to produce 2100 watts RMS @ 1ohm load. Most amplifier manufacturers overstate their claims. The 2100 watt output is most likely at 14.4 volts and not the 12.6 volts your car will actually be providing the amp.

But, even if the actual output was 2100 watts that would be 1050 watts to each 12w7. The 12w7's are rated at 1000watts RMS and 2000watts peak. As a MECP certified installer, any system I have done using 12w7's have had a MINIMUM of 1000 watts being provided to each speaker. My personal preference is to run 1500 watts each and keep the gains adjusted lower on the amp. Thus allowing the amp to run cooler and allow the additional headroom for those "show-off" moments!

I just bought 2 plsq10d/ 10" square Pyle subwoofers. I've got some questions. What would be better, one amp or two? How many watts for the amp(s)? Do I need to mess with my alternator to power this system?...


Hi, tech specs say 1200 watts peak. what you want is RMS value and quick guide I use to comvert watts peak to Rms is divide by 3 (approx=400Wrms) Ok to drive a little harder - use 500Watt RMS amps per speaker. decision to use 1 or 2 amps depends on amp capability -use 2 x 500wrms 2 channel amps(1 per speaker bridged mode) or 1 x 1000wrms 4 channel amp (bridge 2 channels for each speaker). Whether you need to do anything about your charging system will depend largely on the capability of your alternator and the various vehicle loads that need to be supplied on a day to day basis ( use winter for worst case scenarios) as this system could be reasonably expected to consume 60 amps on large bass notes (dead giveaway is to add the fuse ratings on nominated amps). there is vast amounts of knowledge for this subject and what has been touched on here is just that

What kind of car amp would power these? I had these installed way back in 05 and the place is no longer there but the amp they used keeps over heating


any amp over 400 watts can power pretty much any sub even one without a sub output just bridge the connection to an amp without sub output. btw a subwoofer does not use as much watts as it says on the sub it usually only take a couple hundred watts to power the sub and make it sound clean

I have a 400 watt power mixer with two speakers how do i add monitors or speakers.


if the desk has aux sends you can use this output to drive a monitor amp and speakers

if the desk has main output jacks at line level you can use this to drive another amp and speakers for the main system.

I have all the wires running right but for some reason my amp is not picking up or pushing my subs. could the rca jacks be messed up on the stereo?


According to the specs for the xo 1945- the output is; 50W x 4 Max Power Output , and I do not see a pre amp output listed. So I think to connect subs, you will need a separate AMP.
The way this works; the rear speaker wires from the xo 1945 hook into the Add-on amp, for example a 4 channel amp. In a 4 channel amp, the rear speakers come off two of the channels of the add-on, and the subs come off the other two channels. There is also the option of bridging two channels for more output power to ONE sub.
You did not mention what size sub(s) you were thinking of adding, but keep in mind that the ox 1945 puts 50 watts MAX per channel. So, if you add two 12" subs and a 1500 watt amp to drive them, your total sound is going to be very uneven.
If you go on line and look up auto audio or amps, you'll get a good idea of all the Sub and amp options that are available.... Hope this helps.

Head lights flash when bass hits


your battery and/or charging system isnt strong enough to handle the load the 15" subwoofer is causing.

you will need to add a capacitor to your audio system.

I want to upgrade my Kenwood KDC-MP435U sound


1. your charging system is your only limitation for watts but you can add plenty without upgrading it. i'd say 1,000 watts max on the stock batter and alternator with large power and ground cables of at least 4 gauge.

2. yes. using your subwoofer rca outputs.

3. for a subwoofer you should always ad an amp. i'd say a 3-400 watt amp is fine to match up with you kenwood speakers. you will need a small sub to fit in there or maybe one slim enclosure behind each seat with slim 8" subs
