Btw local to chicago let me know if you find a mojo 4000 forsale mine was stolen
So when I said school me on batteries, I was kind of asking about the whole Amp-hour ratings
Is the general rule as much Ah as possible?
I'm a commercial sales rep. for Batt. Plus.
I can tell you we no longer carry them in our Stores and we are the biggest franchise in the national chain.
The warranty claims on Exide product were 8 to 1 compared to our East Penn made product "Deka"
I would never recommend an Exide Deep Cycle to anyone including a fisherman.
* I'm not sure of your mounting location but remember you should never use a flooded battery in the interior of the car with out proper venting.
I understand cost is a factor but AGM is the way to go for car audio guys.
Non spillable,Sealed, Non venting, They can benefit from higher charge rates, Have a deeper depth of discharge, More charge cycles ect.
They plates of an AGM are like a metal weave and the electrolyte is a paste that is shrunk wrapped on to the substrate.
They do excellent with vibration. It's gonna be alot more forgiving chemistry compared to the standard flooded options with the liquid electrolyte sloshing around and the lead plates and lead plate connectors being exposed to the inherent vibrations of a loud system.
If you need a quote on something let me know shipping from IL to MPLS shouldn't be that bad
For car audio applications the more storage capacity "Stored Energy" you have available in you battery/batteries the better.....
Im thinking XS really has somethign up their sleeve compared to others.
XS Power D3100 v/s Competition Group 31 Load Test - YouTube
XS Power D3100 v/s Competitor Group 31 - YouTube
If I choose a D3400 as a primary,
Could i use another brand AGM for secondary?
After those videos it would seem like D3400 would be a great primary for me.
xs is overpriced and overhyped IMO.
You have an East Penn distributor in the Chitown area and they usually sell refurbs and blems at very good prices.
im running stock alt and only 1 optima yellowtop group 31 battery and I have about 2500 watts and my car is perfectly fine, voltage down to around 12.9 to 13s when bass hits hard. its not gonna kill anything lol ive had my system in for a year
1 Deka 8a31
Wow am I stupid for not checking this first.
Does anybody know the name of that distrubitor??
I have had luck with a xspower under the hood (only part that I havent had to replace for my POS)
and the xs fits perfect, cant fit a tall battery under my hood without it hiting the terminals jeep pos
