    Should I get 2nd battery & where to put?

    Where can I put second battery, so I can watch a movie with out having a car on/running. Is optima red top has enough juice to last a single movie?

    Plan on doing big 3 upgrade soon.

    the box is to house the battery and to make it look stock for the most part .put heavy duty vel cro on the bottom so that it sticks to the carpet ,but so that the battery box can be moved if need be .

    I agree with what mylows said. or mount it infront of your amp and make a beauty pannel then you wont see the amp or the battery

    Re: Should I get 2nd battery & where to put?

    Have you ever considered making a fake floor. You can hide the battery in there, place it sideways...and still have access to your spare. I'm building a fake wall in mine...where I can still pull up the floor to get to my spare...in case if anything happens...as well as access to my battery...which is in the trunk as well. My batteries are going to be hidden behind the wall..since it's only like 3.5in depth.. I got the xspower xp750s...small batteries. But yes, Optima did my justice when I ran 2,000rms off it. Never seen light dims and held a charge for a long time.

    ...say can that red top fit in between the gas well and the back of the seat on the left side...if so..just make a wall in there to hide it...since you never will need that space..
