    School me on batteries

    I am going down to 12V (14V charging) system from a 14V (16.5V charging).
    I need a solution for the most cost efficient batteries for 2000-3000RMS.
    Car is set up for SPL but will mostly see music everyday. So I need the car to be reliable even in -20 degree or less Chicago winter lol

    Looking for a suggestion for a primary charging with a Mechman 320A.
    Also how many/what secondary batteries.
    On 14V my only choice was the D1400s so it didnt take much thinking ha

    AGM batteries pretty much have to stay with other AGM batteries right?

    Re: School me on batteries

    Wait.... Why would you want to charge at 12v instead of 14v?

    Re: School me on batteries

    More amplifier options for less money.
    My mojo 4000 was stolen and it loved 16.5 charging, but its hard to find amps for lesser price that can handle it.

    ---------- Post added at 02:35 AM ---------- Previous post was at 02:34 AM ----------

    And Im pretty sure it damaged my car PCM even though Mechman told me I would be fine.


    EDIT: I want to charge at 14V (12V system resting)/
    What I am coming down from is 16.5V charging (14V system resting)

    Re: School me on batteries

    Well 2 of the batteries in the trunk got stolen along with my amp.
    And 3400s are $260 a piece. I cant afford that.

    Im wondering if I should stay AGM, or if there is something else I could do with the money.
    I.e 5 group 31s? I have no idea thats why I am asking

    Re: School me on batteries

    That looks like a great deal!
    Would this be alright as a primary?

    Would never buy a battery from menards I know everything they sell is really low quality. I use to work for them.

    And those deka g31s are more than the Xspower 3400s! Insane! lol
