Okay talking to local "Experts" and then getting on google and researching is about to drive me batty. Completely different opinions on everything I have asked so I am going to ask here
Local "Expert" said that a capacitor would be a good investment to have less strain on my alternator.
Google researching through threads say it's a waste of money and won't help much if at all.
So here is my deal, I have to buy a new battery anyways for my car, A stock battery for it can be had for around $60 and a capacitor for around $60, but for $40 more I could have a Kinetik HC 600 (which I know absolutely nothing about)
I know a new alternator would be the best investment but I don't have 300+ to drop right now.
so here are my questions:
1. All I have to run is a + wire from my regular battery to the second battery and ground the second battery and I'm good to go right? so basically it isn't any harder than doing an amp wire install? or is there more to it?
2. I've read I should get a Battery Isolator, Is that a must? also if the battery is 850 amps what amp isolator would I have to get? they seem kind of expensive except for the really low amp ones (80) would those ones be useless to me?
3. what size gauge wire would I run for the positive to positive on the batteries? I am assuming 1/0 or similar (everything I have for my amp is 4 gauge)
4. will this put more strain on my alternator and thus be kind of counter active against what I'm trying to accomplish? (thats what I've heard)
Also I've already done the big 3 upgrade
thank you for the help
