    what kind of batt should i get?

    I'm looking for a new batt as i stated. its going to be a starter battery but will hopefully help my electrical some. going into a honda civic so it can't be huge and i also done have a big budget like $200 maybe $250 if it will make a huge difference. pushing a little over 1000w rms right now on my system.

    I've heard diehard platnums r good and they r in my price range. id like an xs batt but that will prbly be outta my price range.

    any suggestions?

    thanks

    Group 34 is about the biggest you can fit if I remember correctly. I got a Duralast Platinum which is a rebadged deka and it's working great for me.

    just go to their website and pick the one that will fit in your car, or get the d3100 and wire it up in the trunk, it doesnt have to be in the factory location...

    I would assume that you would just run longer runs of the factory wiring.... would be tough, but I love my d3100's, straight up tanks. they do work err day son.

    the only thing you get with xs is like jl. an under rated batt at a price that is rediculous.
