View Full Version : Do I need a 2nd battery for my upcoming system?

03-02-2009, 03:50 PM
I am not sure whether to buy one Stinger SPV70 that bumpin buick got for sale (great price)

My upcoming system will have:
250 amp rhino series H/O alternator by mechman
Pioneer Avic-F90BT
Kicker ZX2500.1
15" Cascade Design Omega
4 channel Amp (undecided)

so do you think I will need a 2nd battery in the back or not?

I was hoping that I would not need one.. but if it is neccessary then I should be able to make it work..

P.S. this will just be for daily beating, no competitions or anything..

Any input would be appreciated, thanks

EDIT: WTF not sure why did I post this in wrong subforum, please move this thread to electrical help section, thanks

well i had a zx2500 hooked up in my blazer it had a red top under the hood a 200amp alt and the big 3 in 1/0 and the amp cut out at higher volumes...do to lack of power when i added a yellowtop out back it was fine..hope that helps at all

i see hmm..

higher volumes like how high? close to max?

I dont really listen to my system at maximum volumes, I normally like it when it bumps thats it, not too loud you know..

thats a pretty good size amp, i would say you should get one, NEED one maybe not, but you probably SHOULD, it always makes it a little easier on the amp

i dont think bumpin buick has anymore of the stingers left.
