hey guys new here but im trying to buy everything i need for my system and get it ready for after the winter. im gonna be running a 2ohm 12" orion hcca with an audiopipe 30001d. i am thinking at least 200 amp alternator (or should it be 240?), an optima red top battery up front, and like a 4 farad capacitor. obviously big 3 and o gauge all around. so for you experts does this sound sufficient? i dont want dimming lights and all that garbage. so please help and let me know if this sounds good! thanks a lot!

Do not do the cap! Everything else sounds good but you will need to add a second batt in the rear as well... IMO Red tops are mehhh for the money you spend

Its no harder then running wire to an amo in the back you just run it to the second batt first... Caps have been proved to be useless, Search them on here...

dump the cap,either put the biggest battery you can up frt ,like a stinger ,odyssey,or xs power.then if still needed add one to the back.the cap is CRAP.

You need a rear battery. Consider the following battery I have up for sale.. It will be sold tomorrow unless someone else hits it up today. Capacitors do have some use, but not for what you think. Don't waste your money on a capacitor! Just going to offer you the chance for it before it goes tomorrow. At any rate good luck with your future build!
