    car audio batteries

    I'm talking about kinetik mainly. How are they better for audio needs than any other type of battery? And are they used under the hood, for cranking and what not, or are they mainly used as a second battery in the trunk? And if a battery is put in the trunk and used as a backup, how does it maintain its charge?

    Re: car audio batteries

    They are sealed and do not leak or corrode battery acid. If you put it inside the car you don't have to worry about toxic fumes coming from it. They have a lower internal resistance than normal bats. They tend to hold charge longer, handle abuse better, and have a longer life expectancy. Plus they are really easy to load a lot of terminals on (using 3/8" bolts).

    they also tend to have slightly higher voltage than a wet non sealed cell. you can use them under the hood just fine. they are deep cycle and they also have a very large capacity for their size.

    Re: car audio batteries

    Just bought me a 1400 the other day and i couldn't complain. No more dimming or voltage drops. I dont know if its me but i also feel like my system is more alive now. Before, I would crank it up to about 27 on my X889 before distortion. Now i play it at 30 with no distortion and feels like i can notch it a few more times. Im not that brave yet.

    Re: car audio batteries

    i'll rephrase the question....

    does adding a second battery overload your *stock electrical system?

    Re: car audio batteries

    yeah besides i'm being four reelz...

    here's some more helpful info... buy some 3/8th all thread, nuts washers and ring terminals with your kinetik... the terminals that come with it are so short they're almost useless (unless you're using the top post style attachment)...

    Re: car audio batteries

    Adding a second battery before an high output alternator will just put 2x the strain on your stock alternator with the 2nd battery. Big 3, Under hood battery, Alternator, Extra batteries in that order
