    Subs in a Mustang, Battery questions.

    I recently got a 2010 Mustang and I want to put my old subs/amp into it. I have two 12 inch TNT American Bass subwoofers as well as the American Bass 2500 watt Phantom amplifier. So I am going to be pushing a lot of power but I will probably keep the gain down relatively low since it is a system coming from a Grand Cherokee to a Mustang. In the Jeep I had the big 3 upgrade as well as a high output alternator. I would like to avoid getting a new alternator for the Mustang if possible.

    However, the last time I went to the Ford dealership they told me that my battery was getting low. So I plan to get a new battery as well as the big 3 upgrade for the system. I've looked at kinetik batteries before and don't know if I should be looking into that brand or something else. I also have no clue what size batteries will fit into my mustang or how much power the battery should be rated for if I am going to be pushing a 1000 watt system and I have the Shaker 500 system currently in my vehicle as well. Basically, what battery brand should I be looking into that is affordable and reliable and will fit in my car while also providing the right amount of power? Thanks for any help.

    The stock alternator should be more than enough for a 1k watt system. Any good brand battery will do the trick as long as you dont jam out in your car a lot with the car off

    I like the subs, hate the car though.

    Things to look forward to:
    (2) 10" or 12" imperium audio designs subs
    set of PHD MF 6.5" comps
    Completely seal off and deaden my doors
    aquire a 2k amp
    aquire a 2 channel amp for front stage

    Get a decent sized AGM, do the big 3, and don't bump too much with the car off and you'll be fine for 1K watt system.

    I had a '97 with a system similar and I had very little voltage drop when playing full tilt.

    2010 Nissan Titan Cab 4x4
    HU- Pioneer AVH-5500BHS
    Comps- DD CS 6.5's
    Comp Amp- DD C5C
    Sub- 2 SA-10 D4
    Sub Amp- DC Audio 1.2K
    Wiring- a decent amount
    Big 3- Yep
