    Icon6 Big 3 with dual Kinetic batteries

    I have 2 Kinetic 1800 wired in parallel with 0 Awg (+ to + & - to -)

    For the big three do I just need to run a 0 Awg cable from the alternator to the main kinetic positive terminal? or do I need to do this on both main and secondary battries?

    For the ground: I run a 0 Awg cable from the secondary kinetic negative terminal to the engine block? or do I run it also from the main battery, or both...

    A diagram would be great if someone has one handy http://cdn1.caraudio.com/images/icons/icon6.png

    Re: Big 3 with dual Kinetic batteries

    i think your lost forget about the secondary battery for a minute ...... The 3 wires are:
    - Positive from battery to positive from alternator ****fused****
    - Negative from battery to ground
    - Engine block to ground

    heres a link that will help you out
    How To Do The Big 3: Tutorial - Electrical-battery- Alternators- Wiring - SMD Forum


    then on to the secondary battery
    1 run from positive of primary battery to positive of secondary fused on each end as close to the battery as possible
    1 run ground to ground and done

    hope this helps as its straight forward good luck op

    Re: Big 3 with dual Kinetic batteries

    I always do both batteries up front. Might be a bit over kill. But it can't hurt either

    Re: Big 3 with dual Kinetic batteries

    The big three up front should be fine but I've also seen people run an additional pos line from alternator to secondary battery (fused of course) this I'm not sure is necessary I guess depends alt size.I would run a neg line from front battery directly to secondary battery neg
