    Hi guys.
    It's about a week how I bought my prius C and I wanna add some changes to it's audio system.
    I have some audio gear and need your advice how to install it.
    1. Alpine swe1243e rms 250 peak 800
    2. Focal 27v2 rms 300 peak 600
    3. Sony Xplod GTR2202 (AB class amplifier bridge rms 500)
    4. Alpine 9855 (head unit)
    Will it kill my battery or it is better to change my amp?
    Is it necessary to install a new additional battery?

    I would think you will be fine I have a 750 rms watt and, I never clip it. And no issues with factory battery. I'm pushing a Alpine type R in the hatch

    Hey thanks for your support.
    my amp is AB class and uses much more energy than D class. I decided to change amp to D class, but question about battery is still opened. Shall I add another one or replace old with a new more powwerfull one?

    Regular battery should be fine, though you might want to evaluate how fresh yours is and replace early/more often.
