    Battery drain Problem

    Ok ive been looking at a few threads and seen either a deep cycle battery of a Cap to solve Battery drain problems

    I have a 120 amp alt and a 750 CC 875 CA battery im just pushing a 1200 watt brutus the only problem is at nite when i come to a stop my voltage goes from around 15 all the way to 12 wht should i do upgrade to a deep cycle battery, add a cap or get a HO altenator.

    Im really stumped because i was thinking that the alt would put out enough power for this system.

    Re: Battery drain Problem

    I have had this same problem. I think its just cause I have an old *** car (73 duster). When my lights are on, sometimes my system will shut off. Even if I hit the brakes or turn siginal it will cut out. Thinking I need a cap.

    NO need for a cap. Search here on how to do the big 3 upgrade and maybe get a bigger/better battery up front.
