    battery suggestions?

    Im looking into getting a battery for my system but I have no clue what to get. Its just gonna be used to power a saz-1500 which will be running a Fi bl 15. Everyone on here is saying xs power is the way to go. Is there anything cheaper out there that is comparable to the xs power? And does anyone know of any good dry cell batteries out there or are these dry cells? I dont know much about these still trying to learn.

    Thanks

    Connor

    Nothing cheaper is goingto compare to XS. But you dont need to go there if you dont plan on going bigger. If you do then do it right the first time

    Ya I figured everyone would say that I just thought I would ask see if there was. If you were to suggest something other then xs what would be other brands that are cheaper but can still get the job done?

    I honestly cant say but not everybody thinks like me. I would rather have one battery that does the job then 4. You can run cheap subs, cheap amps, cheap batteries and get similur results but its going to take twice or more the equipment. In the end the cost is the same

    I'm running 6 c and d batts on 8k and I have no voltage issues. They are150 ah. I usea xs d 2400 under the hood. I'm a huge fan of xs they are amazing but if u are not chasing numbers alot will work. SEARS PLATINUM,ODYSEY,DURACELL FROM SAMS ARE YOUR BEST BET,DEKA, C AND D, ANY EAST PENN MADE BATT.

    I'm running THREE 3400s on close to 6K about to be 2500 more and I have a good feeling I will still be at 13v. Stay above 14 now

    I have seen fair comparisons betwwen what xs and dekas do and honestly wasnt much gain swapping out for xs d3100's from 9a31's were talking .2 on the mic and that was actually adding a extra d3100 than he had dekas. So more batteries and a ton more money for a .2 gain I am not sure bit adding another deka may habe yielded same results.

    Its not about the meter. Its about lasting draw in a daily driver. Have him try a 30 second average if he didnt.

    he competes meca his park and pound score stayed steady only gained the .2 on the mic on a burp and meter does matter as it shows every little bit of extra you get.

    We've hadd people double their banks and not gain. The TL reads for 3 seconds?

    the termlab takes multiple reading per second. a burp the termlab runs for 30 seconds burp as many times as you want for park and pound its a 30 second music run.

    I know how MECA works. I'm saying the TL takes only 3 seconds to read a full score

    it can read in like 2 seconds its best to wait 3 seconds into your run to burp it as it allows the termlab to level out or you could loose a little bit.
