    Is a Battery really worth it?

    If i get a battery for the system, is the difference really noticeable? If so, usually whats the difference in using a battery vs no battery in terms of DB?

    on that amp you may not hear any difference,but it will help your electrical,especially if your lights are dimming

    It might help a little but I doubt youll gain much with that amp.
