    what is your setup car, amps, subs, wiring, all of it. An extra batt will help it play longer with the car off but it might be unnecessary, just start your car...

    well adding a batt can only help but i doubt you will see 1200w. Just get your big 3 done and see where you are sitting at voltage wise after.
