Re: Dual alternators/Underhood welder idea??

1. Are you out of your mind?

No.

2. Would Dual Alternators be an alternitive to one High Output alternoator?

If the quest is to obtain better charging of a battery, yes.. but on seperate circuits.

If the quest is for higher amperage on one circuit for a welder, then no. You can't parallel alternators because there is not voltage regulation between the two. You could purchase some pretty fancy regulator systems, but by then you would be back up to the cost of one higher amperage alternator.
