    like this
    front battery positive to fuse in engine bay then to another fuse in the trunk then to second battery.
    Second battery. 2 options. you can ground it to the chassis in the trunk, or you can run another line of wire and ground it to the engine battery.
    as for needing another alt. what amps are you using? what stock alt do you have? what batteries do you have?
    also the seasrch button works wonders!

    How powerful is the amp?
    How many watts RMS?
    You might need more than 2 gauge.
    You may not need another battery.
    Whats the amperage on your alternator? (You can look it up on wikipedia or google)

    Re: how to hook up another battery??

    Ok first off man since i can tell your new first off welcome to the forums here let me help you out man. Don't run a capacitor you'll learn why from reading around on here and other's telling you. Mostly reason because it just adds to your electrical system dragging it down add a 2nd battery don't worry about the cap. But here's how you add a 2nd battery man.

    Go 1/0awg wire if you can
    Run a pos. wire (make sure u fuse it , try to put the fuse closest to the 2nd battery as possible) then take your power wire going into your distro block cut is put the fuse inbetween it run that wire to pos also. So you now have a total of 2 wires on that pos. side. Next take another wire and ground your 2nd battery such as take that wire put a wire terminal on the end of it whichever will fit for the wire awg that you are using make sure u sand the metal that you are grounding to , so that you get a good solid ground.and there you go you have your 2nd battery. I know your probably gonna ask why the 2nd wire from distro it helps your amps so that your lights do not dim also adding voltage for your amps.

    Re: how to hook up another battery??

    wow....u def need to upgrade both of those amps. They dont do rated power and are just paper weights

    if ur gonna go with 2 type r's, look for a amp between 1000-1400 watts, those r's can take some power

    thats too little power for 2 type rs.

    hifonics is a great budget amp, does its rated power.

    get this one....
    http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-HIFONICS-BXI...em120239123123

    then buy 2 type r's( Get dual 2ohm versions). Wire it down to 1ohm and u got 600 to each r
