    When do you need extra batteries?

    I've got a '73 Plymouth Duster. Right now ive got an alpine HU and (2) 6x9s hooked up. Im about to hook up an amp and (2) 12'' subs.

    Well later down the road, I plan on getting some more subs and an amp.

    Will I need another battery?

    Depends on what you plan on running.. If you want to run a nice amount of power an unpgraded electrical system is recomended.

    Caps??

    So if I get another battery, wont it die fast? Then I will be recharging it constantly

    edit - the amp is a Hifonics 1600W and its with 2 DLS sp12i

    As for later down the road, it will probally be like (2) 10's or 12's

    you have a long way to go before that, and if their is caps and/ high output alternator would be first.

    Re: When do you need extra batteries?

    I would recommend a high output alternator first and a nice aftermarket battery then upon finalizing your equipment choice decide if you have enough power on tap to handle the demand.

    Are alternators universal? As in do they all work with every car? Reccomendatios?
