    what would you do?

    this is my prob my alt is rated at 100 amps there is no shops in my area that will rewind car alt(because legal stuff some pepole get these high output alts and when wires fry in there cars they come back and sue the company that sold it to them)and i dont have enough money to get a aftermarket alt i went to a few shops and this is what they came up with. 1 add a cap or two 2 add a second battery(but i keep reading in this form that this is only good if you listen to your music all the time with your car off this is something i dont do)or 3 add a bigger battery(im leaning towards a yellow top or lighting audio deep cycle battery) and just dont crank my music for long peiords of time im running a jbl 1200.1 at 2ohm a koiler 600 in stereo a pionnere 200 watt amp in stereo and a 5.6inch tv with a playstation2 with a 200watt power inverter

    sure you could add a battery, but if your alt is too small, what is going to charge that, you will still have the same prob....

    Those guys don't know what they're talking about. A battery's primary job is to start your car. After it does this, it becomes a load on the alternator. Your car's electrical system draws current from the battery with or without the car on. When the car is on, however, the alternator keeps the battery charged. The dimming occurs when the alternator is not able to supply enough current to keep the voltage up in the battery.

    So, conseqently, an additional battery would do nothing, and it might only make it worse. The only good an additional battery would do in your case is allow you to play your stereo longer while the ignition is off.
