    what battery should i buy?

    ok, so im not too familiar with batteries for car audio as ive never ran any other than the one under my hood but im in need of one now so its time to learn lol..

    i have a 2007 scion tc and running around 2000watts roughly from two amps so which battery would best suit my needs, i don't want to spend a ridiculous amount on this if possible.. i guess like around $300?

    prefer well known brands like xs, optima, and anything along those lines please!

    thanks will be given for your help! if you need more info to make a suggestion let me know guys

    yea eventually thats the plan im plannin on going bigger after the summer to around 5-6k and diff subs so it will be necessary at that time, prob have to buy another batt or two when that time comes im sure....

    why do you ask though for the amount of power im running now i dont think the H/O alt is that necessary yet..but i will be going bigger for sure

    I'm in for this.. I'm going with a small stinger, space is limited. I'm at about 1700RMS now and the HIDs are hungry, its not bad unless the AC is maxed for 20 minutes straight stuck in traffic, and I decide to crank it.

    buss bars are expensive to make, i wouldn't bother with them personally unless you were doing a large setup. wiring them in parallel with some 0gauge would be sufficient

    I'm just wondering because you don't need many batts for a stock alt. It just puts stress on your woke
    System. But if you are planning to run 5-6k plus getting a ho alt then yes definitely the dekas
