    Second battery options help

    Little advice needed Im planning on running a second battery in the cab of my truck 99 f150 v8 100amp altanater with big 3 done zero gage all around! The amp is a kicker zx2500 pushing 2 15 l7 in a 12 cube box! The amp is brand new hasn't been hooked up yet due to me not having my second battery yet! WHAT BATTERY DO I WANT AS A SECONDARY? HELP!! Was about to pick up a hc2400 kinetik today but was wondering is there somthing better for the money? Should I be looking at a different battery!

    Deka Intimidator is hard to beat for the money. Autozone, O'reillys, Advanced, Sam's Club all have versions of them. Same batt just a diff sticker on them.

    L7's should do well in that enclosure. 99% of people run them in undersized prefabs, but I've built a few in the right sized enclosure and they can get very loud. Subs might not like that much power in that box, so be careful...

    Deka? Is there a link cause I can't seem to find it! It would out perform the kinetik 2400?

    Yeah the amp may be a little to big but I rather have more than too little haha
