    Do I need a second battery?

    2000 neon with stock alt (90 amp I think)

    Im thinking a new front battery is a good idea (Kinetik HC1400)

    Running 1500w max. I have a run of OFC 0 gauge for power. Big 3 is NOT done.

    can I get away with the big 3 and a new front battery and be fine?. Im fused in front and the 0 gauge is run into a fused distro and from there its 4 gauge to the amp.

    If I do add a second battery is it fine to ground the back battery to the chassis and the amp to the chassis?.

    Re: Do I need a second battery?

    i would say your going to need the second battery and do the big three, ground battery to chassis and amp to battery.

    Re: Do I need a second battery?

    I found the xenon not to be that big of a current hog. I would just do the big 3 and the new battery up front. I bet you will be fine voltage wise with that if not nothing big for a second battery would be needed.
