I tried it in my buddies car with simular setup and it sound better but his old el 300 sounds better and hits lows alot better. I have 4 guage wiring kit
For starters, 2 gauge wire is recommended for the P500D. Second, the amperage draw of the ELA1300 is half that of the P500D. If your vehicle's electrical system cannot adequately provide an additional 80 amperage draw on top of powering all of the other vehicle accessories, any amplifier will distort easily, this not being unique to the P500D.
