    Hmm, $170 big three.

    doez i hook teh ground to teh positive then to my rim?
    One of those kind of post.

    So, I am orderin 67 foot of KnuKonceptz KCA

    14 foot from my bumper to my headlights, because my battery is in my trunk..? Weird. Anyway, so I have to run to my trunk three times.. Good luck to myself finding a way to get three 0/1 through my firewall when it's sealed, they welded a custom piece into it to cover the gap over stock wiring. Getting it under the carpet might be fun also

    So there is a bulk of it, then 8 ring terminals. Three for my wires off my big three, then another 2 for my grounds [dual amp]

    Will these terminals work fine for upgrade? Amazon.com: XScorpion 24K Gold Plated Finish Ring Terminal Connection Style Battery Terminal: Car Electronics
    How do these attach to my battery anyway?

    Just need to add my inline fuse, how do I go about finding what size fuze to through in there?
    When does one look into a extra battery? I am about to be pushing 2,400
    My car idles at 14.4 and when my subs hit it only drops to 13.6 at 1.2k watts [ before big three] I am doing big three, at 2,400 watts is something of higher caliber without a doubt needed, besides big 3 of course. Reducin' that stress How does one know when that extra battery is needed? What does the extra do anyway, I've never messed with powerful systems [only candy *** 500 watt systems] I can't seem to figure out what the extra battery is for, besides maybe listening to it with the car off? Inform me please.
    When do I look at a aftermarket alternator? I believe my stock does 125amps. Is there a certain benchmark? Or is it as needed, when your voltage starts dropping, and dropping, and dropping.

    Re: Hmm, $170 big three.

    is there a route under the car to the trunk? batteries are just more practical caps... when you m,ake those big spikes of power, well beyond what your alternator can put out, having more battery lessens how far the voltage will drop, but really, an alternator is the way to go. a 250+ would be ideal. after-all, the alternator has to replace what i usually round to 3x the amount of power you pull from the battery to recover. also, the power you pull from the batteries will always be lower than charging voltage, meaning less output from the amp.
    check the electrical and wiring section. both ram and pro-rabbit have good terminals on the cheaps.

    btw, i read your sig. he may have thought you meant the brand "dual", which is one walmart carries. that brand does create much confusion. "sundown sa-12's" would've gone over gooder.



    *IF I have forgotten to exchange feedback, please let me know*
    i buy broken amps....
    No, i will not "gift" paypal. please do not even make it awkward by asking. if the fees are an issue, I am usually inclined to add them. unless you have discount elsewhere, shipping is through usps flat rate, through usps parcel post, or through the roof..... i am in alaska. thanks
