    Ya 4g is enough. They wouldnt have put 4g inputs on that amp if it wasnt enough.

    No more voltage drops at full tilt, idling.

    Re: replacing stock battery, useless without big 3?

    I run 1700rms on 0/1g Knu wire, 2 batteries in a Redtop and Powermaster5100d in the back and I get no voltage drops, until I really crank on it, but still not that bad. Lights don't dim.................and I didn't do the big3 yet.

    My car I need a lift to get to my alty, which is under the car and a pain to get too!

    Car does fine without it though.

    Re: replacing stock battery, useless without big 3?

    for 900 watts I would do the big 3 and a new agm battery under the hood. Be it a deka, orbital or kinetik. Would need less maintenance in the long run but not as big of a necessity as the big 3.

    i was looking over this walk through and noticed he used a fuse. is this necessary? i thought all you need is some 0guage wiring and the ring terminals and you are set. any input here guys? and for the AQ1200d i was told the 4guage is fine. so please tell me the difference between these 2 kits besides the price.....http://www.knukonceptz.com/productDe...prodID=KFX-AK4

    Re: replacing stock battery, useless without big 3?

    Well from what I can see so far, The difference is in the speaker wire and rca's. I would assume the higher price set is using a step up for those. A lot of people argue rca quality is not important. I do think however that speaker wire is.
