    12 volt vs. 16 volt battery bank

    So I have a soundstream XXX 6500, and 3 batteries, in my HHR I cant get my voltage to stay above like 13.4 volts, I think alt is computer controlled. So my question is for burps 13.4 volts and 3 batteries vs. a standalone (2) 16 volt batteries

    Hey Rob.I think you would gain going to 16v with those SS.

    Re: 12 volt vs. 16 volt battery bank

    Beef up the electrical and i would run some kinetic's that are capable of running 16v.

    He's running 3 2400's right now.So I don't think his electrical is lacking.Its the ECU fawking regulating his voltage that low.

    Re: 12 volt vs. 16 volt battery bank

    You may have a bad battery,
    My voltage rests at 14.6v with the car on.

    But you would most likely gain with 16v batteries taken that you keep them charged up.

    buy 6 6volt batts and wire 3 in series and the other 3 in series then wire them in parallel then get an externally reg to reg Voltage

    We are limited to 18v in dB Drag, that would rest over 18v.

    It would be much better (reliable, easier) To just use Power Master D1000 16v batteries or something similar. You can charge them at 19v with an external charger and then burp in the lanes from just the batteries.
    Then eventually get an alternator that can charge 16v batteries. PowerMaster will be debuting an HHR alternator soon I think.

    Partly personal pleasure, but he is going against me next month at the dB Drag World Finals.
    We both need to get louder. lol

    isnt their a way to stay under 18V by using diodes and resisitors. thats what i would do and then use my alt to charge to 21-23 V

    There is,
    its just more difficult than getting 16v batteries and an alternator with adj regulator. You can just turn the dial right to 17.99 or 18.00v.

    Your method will work but there is some loss in using resistors, by loss I mean current capability.
    Even with 18v, you still need alot of ah to sustain that amplifier at full power for any length of time.

    You can't charge at 21-23v.The regulator only goes up to 20.You odviously have no clue.

    Thanks Ed, I need to get in with powermaster, but not a lot of time or money right now.


    but ya I was just wondering if say 2 Powermaster D1000 would keep my voltage high enough with no alt to get through finals?

    For a burp you should be fine.
