    Adding a battery

    I just noticed some dimming when I turned on the interior LEDs for the first time since I added some power the the Sub set-up. I think its time to add a battery!
    My question is.. I have Knu CCA running to the back, its basically just for show and is only pulling what good 4awg would pull but thats all I need anyway. Do I need to run OFC 1/0 for the batt or is the CCA fine for about 1200RMS?
    Also would a Kinetik HC600 be enough for mild draw problems? I found one cheap and it matches my build plans.
    Please read sig before you make a comment about set-up

    You're thinking too hard. Just add the battery, no upgraded wiring is needed.

    Re: Adding a battery

    CCA is Copper Clad Aluminum and OFC is Oxygen Free Copper. Difference is OFC is pure copper and CCA is not. OFC can handle more amps then the same sized CCA wire. OFC does cost a good bit more then CCA which is why a lot of people use it. CCA 1/0awg is only rated up to 250amps while OFC is rated around 300-350amps (depending on which brand)
