    Re: Capacitor & Second Battery Questions

    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?

    i know you added the 2nd one. quit playin wit me

    if i were you i'd up it to 1/0 and see. it needs to be done if you're going with a 2nd battery and it might help (a lot).

    Re: Capacitor & Second Battery Questions

    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

    Re: Capacitor & Second Battery Questions

    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

    Re: Capacitor & Second Battery Questions

    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.

    Re: Capacitor & Second Battery Questions

    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

    Knukonceptz product detail for IN-LINE WATERPROOF ANL FUSE HOLDER W/ FUSE

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