    replacing stock battery, useless without big 3?

    i tried searching for this guys. i am at the point where my car needs a new batter so i figured why not get something beefy for my new amp when i get it. assuming i dont do the big 3 for awhile, would a aftermarket battery not be helpful without the big 3? i was thinking that even though the voltages would be higher, the stock wiring might limit its potental greatly. also, would a new alternator be necessary to pair with it as well or is it fine without it. (im only going to be running 900 or so rms watts.) thanks guys

    Na you wont need to do big 3 for only 900w a good aftermarket battery itself should be a good improvement!

    big 3 is pretty easy to do and does not cost much at all
    even w/o the big 3 a better battery upfront will help you alot

    Re: replacing stock battery, useless without big 3?

    The only thing is, the AQ 1200 only takes 4 gauge. I reckon you can run it to the back with 0 and then use a distro into 4 though. Also look at KnuKonceptz, they got some nice wire kits. http://www.knukonceptz.com/productMa...llation%20Kits
