    Stator Amperage??

    Does anyone know the Amp output of the Stator on the 05 RXT?

    I want to put a system on my ski but I wanna make sure I don't overload the "Charging System"

    The 2005 Sea Doo Owners manual lists the following spec for the RXP on page 118:

    360 W @ 6000 RPM

    ... Ron

    Okay so if it 360w at 6000 RPM that equates to:

    30A at 12v
    25A at 14.4v

    Other than the fuel pump and computer what other electronics are running in the ski? (assuming that the Gauge cluster and sensors are going to consume milliamps )

    Exactly. Is 25A enough to charge whatever you're dooing?... Ron

    Well I guess thats what I am trying to figure out. I am building a sound system for the ski.. I am just trying to put some math together to see if I can incorporate a sub without killing my charging system.

    I am trying to figure out how much energy the rest of the components draw. I would like to do a four channel amp but with only 25a that is going to be difficult. So maybe i could do a 6" or 8" ultra efficient sub that you would find in a boom box or acoustimass system. The skis hull would help me out with a little cabin gain.

    I don't want to add another battery due to weight and would also create a larger draw on the ski.

    I guess I need to figure out the draw of the other components.

    You only going to listen to it at speed?

    At lower engine RPM, the available electrical output of the alternator is also less. Much less at near-idle RPM.

    When the engine is off, a 25 Amp load will drain the battery in short order, to the point where it might not be able to re-start the engine.

    If the recharge current into a battery is a reason not to add a second battery, then the discharge current from the first battery during low RPM and engine off situations may be enough reason to install the second battery.

    I would go with a second battery. Your ski won't notice the weight. You could wire in a switch to isolate the batteries from each other and when battery B goes dead, you know it's time to turn it down or off.

    I think you guys are on the right track. I will just get a battery isolator with an automatic low-voltage shut-off for the accessory battery.

    Where are people putting their second batteries? Or has anyone just replaced their existing battery with a big gel cell? I don't want to take up space under my hood. I want everything in the hull.

    Has anyone heard of someone overloading their Stator? Curious to know how much of a pain it would be to replace or get re-wound to a higher amperage...
