    will a second battery do me any good?

    I have a 120 amp alt and a yellow top optima with 0 gauge to the amp "which is a hifonics brz 1700" and I'm doing the big 3 this weekend. Does anyone think that I will benefit from a second battery and why or why not please!!!

    Thanks

    Yes, more capacity when vehicle isn't running. More reserve capacity when winter outside.

    It will help keep you at or above resting voltage under heavy loads but that is about it if your alt cant keep up.
