    Icon32 Do I need a new battery?

    If i am running a hifonics bx1500d in my car ('03 Srt-4) do you reccomend I go with a seperate battery for it??



    ** I have a similar thread in the installation section(same question), sorry to post it twice, but i thought I would get more answers in the amplifiers section**

    depends on your alternator output. hopefully its at least 100 amps. then your should get an optima red or yellow top to replace your stock car battery. make sure to use at least 4gauge for your power & grounds, and the rest should be fine.

    hopefully says it on it. i'd get atleast a 120 amp alt. were u just talking about running like a yellow top to the amp without hooking it up to the alt?
