    Alternator and battery questions

    I have this Duralast Gold/Battery (34DT-DLG) | 1980 Oldsmobile Cutlass 8 Cylinders R 5.7L 4BL OHV | AutoZone.com now and a 140 amp alternator and about to do the big three also, I wanted to know with the Kinetik HC1200 would these two batteries be able to handle the Soundstream Rub1.2500D?

    I think you will be alright with a proper B3 and your ground going back to the main battery. I'd still give your batts a 5 hour slow charge every week with a 10amp digital charger.


    btw... you shouldn't mix AGM's with non

    Re: Alternator and battery questions

    I would do away with the dura last gold I bought one a few weeks ago and returned it for a yellowtop, and I run a t600.2 & 16-mc2000D and have no dimming or bad drops in voltage, with the duralast the drops and dimming where horrible.
