what size wire?
yea, thats about the only thing that ***** about hondas... weak *** alts
you should be ok with a small second batt... as long as you wire everything properly. a kinetic 600 in the back would def help alot... i dont see you getting much headlight dimming with that installed, but, what 800 watt amp will you be installing?
no actually it was always in there lol, and it was also in the post right before you asked. its 4 gauge
i would upgrade the big 3 to 0 gauge if your going to run a second batt... might be a lil bit of overkill, but the way i think about it, is the less restricted your electrical is, the better everything else will work
okay sounds good, I think I will upgrade the 3 first and see how things go and if I still have dimming and issues I'll just **** it up and get the battery and all that $100 aint as bad as I thought it would be for the battery itself + wires and all that it's still cheaper than a new alternator
75 amps is enough to run just about any 1000 watt system. I do not think you need a second battery, but if you want one it will not hurt anything.
might as well load test the alt while you're doin it to make sure it's solid.
what size fuse should be on the wire going from the alternator to the battery pos?
yeah I've noticed some people do some people don't do the fuse
if your running 0 gauge, it should be matched to your alt output, but higher to protect against spikes... i would say a 150 would prolly work fine, with one batt...
and the fuse really is kinda optional... i've never seen an alt spike enough to **** up a batt... or a batt pull enough to **** up an alt (when it is ran properly, mind you... any idiot can **** up an alt in 20 minutes, not knowing what they're doing) .. but i do it just for a lil bit of overkill i guess

this one here is all the same price up to 300amp so I'm guessing it doesn't hurt to run a higher one?
