    Power

    I have a DD Audio M1 amplifier [email protected] 1 ohm running a single DD Audio 3512H D2 Supercharged. What amp battery do I need to add to my setup as a 2nd battery?

    Re: Power

    How big is your alternator? Do you plan on upgrading the amp in the future?

    Re: Power

    HO Alt, 1/0 OFC welding cable, and replace your current battery (provided it's not tiny) with an AGM and you should be fine

    I have a 160 Alt...I don't need an alt. I just need an extra battery. I'l just get a 700CA battery. I Have 0 gauge power and ground. I'm just adding as a precautionary measure.

    Shouldn’t need anything. If you have issues it’s you not the electrical. Clipping or bad ground.

    You didn't mention the alt. Probably getting around 80a at idle so you should be ok especially with 1200w. 2-3kw is where I see people needing more upgrades

    My thoughs as well. A solid primary battery and "big 3" should be adequate to support that assuming your factory alternator is functioning.

    Cars don't need batteries these day bro. They run off of electricity.
