    Icon32 Optima battery or Kinetik battery

    In the a month im going to have 2 12 kicker cvx s w/ a kicker 1500.1 mono amp. Im looking into getting another battery. An optima worker said they dont make a battery for my car and i will have to modify one. A kinetik person told me to get the kinetik kc 2400 which is the biggest battery they make. I cant decide on what to do. The battery will be for my car and my system all in one battery. What do yall think?

    Re: Optima battery or Kinetik battery

    i have my 1500.1 running off my stock battery (that is now 6 years old) with extremely little voltage drop, except for when i have everything running (headlights, fog lights, mirror heaters..etc). before i go off to college im gunna upgrade to a yellowtop..even if i dont need it.

    get yourself an optima yellow top and youll be good.

    dont mean to sound ignorant but from MY understanding kinetic batteries shouldnt be used as car batteries, they're used more as a capactior,, but then again thats MY unerstanding and i havent kept up much.

    What? They are car audio batteries; they're made for cars.

    I thought it was my alt acting up again because my jumper cables weren't working so had it towed there, found out the battery was completely killed, but my jumpers weren't working well either. Funny thing is the night before, i ordered the kinetik and next morning my car doesn't start....go figure.

    Re: Optima battery or Kinetik battery

    I have been running a 1400hz as my starter battery for a year now. Not once has the bat failed me. Looks like it's also going to be the bat that I use for Meca AS1

    Re: Optima battery or Kinetik battery

    my pick would be kinetik over optima. I have a yellowtop and it gets the job done, but kinetiks have the terminal flexibility optima doesn't.

    Do you think i will still need a capacitor cuz the kinetik guy told me that i needed 2700 watts and the biggest battery kinetik offers is for 2400 watts but he said it should be ok
