    Battery....Too ADD or REPLACE?

    Should I replace my stock battery with an XS D4800 or keep the stock battery and add an XS D375?

    I have a JL XD600/6 and a Memphis 16-mcd500. I'm currently pushing about 850 watts. Both amps have a 50a rating.

    what size alternator do you have?

    What do you drop to now?

    It's always recommended to have a nice AGM under the hood.

    140a stock alt. If I turn up the gain all the way on the sub, the voltage drops to about 13.8-9ish

    I'd say you can throw the D4800 underhood but you're good.

    Aslong as voltage isn't dropping into your batteries resting voltage, (12.8 - 13.1 volts), your alt is providing ample amount of power and additional batteries isn't needed.

    Probably don't have to do anything if you're running less than 1kW honestly.

    I was having dimming issues when I turned up the bass so it was warranted.
