    Yea I asked the same question only for 6000 watts. If you got the money powermaster D3100's are what I want but I'm looking for a cheaper alternative. Just don't know if more 3 or 4 batteries like the big C&D's would be better than 2 of the D3100's.

    would a hc 1400 under the hood and 2 hc 800 in the trunk work? and would i need a isolator then?

    you want a sealed battery if your going to put it in your car. Nice batteries aren't cheap . Kinetiks arn't bad, theres some C&D batts on here that everyone likes...

    You can get 2 powermaster d1200's for only $11 dollars more than a d3100 and have more power. About the same size also

    i hope you are good at replacing your alt and plan on doing it pretty frequently because that thing is going to be toast soon
