Where is he going to get 1800W FROM?!?!?! Your recommendation is a great way to leave him stranded somewhere with a fried alternator.
The AP10001D would suffice fine honestly. And that's 1,000w RMS at 1ohm. There's nothing saying he HAS to use 1ohm on it. With a 4ohm load its only 400w RMS, and a 2ohm load is 600w RMS. That's all easily able to be ran off stock electrical. With a big 3 upgrade he could easily handle the 1ohm load at 1,000w.
You'd be very surprised what alternators are capable of handling with the right upgrades done. The best bang for the buck sub amp is the 15001D though at $150.
And who's to say that he has to TUNE the amp at that kind of power levels either? He could always just keep it tuned down for less power if his charging system isn't up to snuff. He's still be better off than running some junk 2 channel amp.
