    Icon32 dual alternator and triple battery steup

    Hey, I currently have two alts. on my truck. One stock and one HO for my system. I have a very simple question. How do i need to hook up the dual batteries on my seccond charging system to maintain 12 volts, rather than 24? Thanks for the help.

    Wire them in parallel to increase Ah but keep voltage constant.

    What kinda stereo are you running?

    It's nice to see someone attually paying attention to their amps current demands and doing something about it rather then dimming to death.

    the truck is a 1991 extended cab s-10. i put a sbc in it ( 350 bored .040 over) and in the process i made some custom brackets for the second alt. to get the subs behind the seat i had to remove both seats, position the enclosure and replace the seats.
