    If you don't know exactly what you're doing, messing with different voltage batteries is probably not a step you want to take. What amps are you running? Do you have a HO alt?

    You have an alt that will charge the battery at 16V? Or some way of bumping up the voltage from your 12V alt to charge it at 16V?

    Yes keep the under hood batt at 12v to run the car then run the audio off 16v .

    Is that going to be safe to mix voltages?

    Re: can someone tell me

    I think I may keep it in the 14 - 15 volt area cause my amp is 14v stable I dont see anything more than that so I dont think I will risk it going any higher thanks to everyone who offered advice.
