    You can believe what you like, but just because they "could" be in the same build house does not mean they are the same thing. Not even close.

    Misinformation like you are spreading is why so many untrue rumors get started. Someone hears from someone this and then x leads to y and then everyone is being told the wrong shit.

    That is what the internet is for. You just have to assume that 65% of the shit you read on the interwebz is just not true.

    i will say this one time and u can either undestand it or not . my info comes from pepole ive dealt with for amp repairs not some tv commercial or internet thread . do u repair amps or have a back ground in engineering? i do not but the pepole that made the claims i listed do . like i said before if somebody wants to get better info on what is really out there there are pepole that can explain better than me . one thing is clear dc makes a great amp as does ab.aq.sundown,crescendo etc....

    Well I have a fire bird with a 105 alt. Very easy on power though , no power locks or anything. PCM instead of computer, no AC and No heat. So with that said what type of battery would I need .

    honestly bud try the amp and see what voltage drop u get . its hard to say because so many things come into play impedance ,voltage drop and box rise play a big role .

    I'm 17 so I'm on a pretty tight budget but regardless I will probably need the big 3 done and 0 gauge wire right?

    you will need the big 3 definately. At minimum this is low cost insurance for your existing electrical

    What exactly is amp hours btw? How do they effect the system and how do I decide how many I need.

    Re: DC 2.0 vs AQ 2200

    its under battery specs for what ever battery you look at. Do your big three and buy a $20 stinger cig light voltage meter. If your voltage dips below 12volts, then I Suggest you start looking for a battery with at least 75 to 100 AH. Amp hours is how many amps you can draw in one hour.

    Re: DC 2.0 vs AQ 2200

    So if you have a 800 cranking amp battery at 50ah (amp hours). this means it can draw 50 amps for 16 hours, or less for more hours
