    Please recommend me some of the cheapest sealed, deep cycle batteries. i am going to have around 4500 rms all together. i will be purchasing at least a 250 high output alternator soon. i don't care if there off brand, the cheaper the better. im not looking for used batteries, just curious what you guys would recommend for someone on a budget. i have been looking at Deka Intimidator 8A8D AGM Battery - Remy Battery
    but i dont understand the specs. what am i looking for? help me learn please, lol.

    Re: Cheapest deep cycle sealed batteries?

    if i purchase a cresendo battery. would a 260 amp alt, a shuriken bt 80 for starter battery, two runs of zero gauge ( could i purchase a 500 amp battery isolater and conmect two runs of 0 gauge to it? would i still need a fuse block with it?) would that be sufficent for a 4800 rms system? just ordered a sound qubed 3500 for 600 bux with free shipping. awesome.

    I saw a stack of batteries at Dick's sporting goods. Not sure what they were as I was in a hurry but they had decent prices.

    Yea deka batteries, depending on the size price ranges from $90-200.
    I got some of the 2X AGM marine batts. Just because I like the marine terminals. The 2X versions are nice, they have the CCA's of a standard starting battery with the deep cycle capability of a marine battery, they just cost a bit more

    Re: Cheapest deep cycle sealed batteries?

    You need about 55AH per 1kW for a solid electrical system. That puts your needs at ~250 AH. If you can fit them, I'd do a 75AH battery under the hood and two 100AH batteries in the back. You don't need an isolator unless you plan to run the system without the vehicle running and I don't recommend playing ~5kW without the vehicle running, unless it's at really low volumes for background music... in which case you're not going to stress the electrical system too much anyway.

    If you shop it right, you should be able to catch 100AH AGM batteries for about $200.00.
