    stock alt=how many batteries?

    so i have a 115A alternator and i have a hc1800 under the hood. im looking to add a 2nd battery and wondering what my alt can safely handle. would like to get a hc800 in the trunk- just wanna make sure the stock alt can support both batteries.
    doing this to safely run my DD M1c at .5. i have a voltage meter on the dash. at what point should i get worried? 12V? really dont wanna fry this amp

    I would only be running .5 for burps.
    so what you guys are saying is i can run my 81ah under the hood and another 100ah or so in the back on a 115A alt?

    Yes. Thats the theory. The one u got under the hold it good, and adding another 100+ah in theback will give you that extra support. Not saying a ho alt isnt needed if you run more power eventually. Buta solid support battery in theback will do what you need it to do
