I have 2 Orion H2 12.2 subs that will be powered by an Orion 2500D amp at 1 Ohm (I think). I've been searching high and low for all my options. I am going to do the Big3 upgrade for sure but i was thinking about getting a Kinetik HC1800 battery for a secondary battery in the back and I still have my regular Duralast Battery in the front. I'm going to run 0 gauge throughout my truck (2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee). I have a stock 136 Amp alternator.Thoughts?????

Yes It would be a good idea to do a second battery, I run 2k from single battery and I drop from 15v to 13.2 under load,(If I REEEELY FLOG IT) Lights dim of course. To avoid dimming and to avoid ruining yo carz I would get an 1800 though the 1400 would probably work ok too.

You were better off not mentioning that. On a good note, go sell it and use the money to help fund your battery.

I actually placed an ad up here earlier to try to trade it or sell it...I'll take that money and put it towards a new battery...

You'll have better luck on craigslist, especially for that price.

while we're at it - can someone explain to me why exactly caps are bad??

I'm not saying they aren't. I never used one and never will simply based on all the people bashing them, i just don't understand what exactly it does that hurts you. Someting along the lines of "power it stores still comes from sowhere so in reality u're rubbing your...."

They are not bad at all. They simply don't add what the uninformed people claim they add.

But a cap, in no way detracts from the performance, and it most definitely acts as a filter, smoothing out any electrical noise you may have - and this is probably not audible.

 

The whole subject is a clusterfuck on the net, so good luck being pointed to a reliable source, and there is usually a similar reliable source saying the exact opposite.

 

Just read as much as you can on the subject, and make your own conclusion. Haven't read about anyone adding a cap and then reporting noticeable reduction in performance.

Might want to look into a battery isolator if you're going to be running two completely different batteries (duralast wetcell and kinetik agm).

Okay, I'm hearing mixed opinions here...some folks are telling me to keep the Cap and get a second battery! They said that the cap will help when that deep bass demands alot of power! as supposed to pulling all of the energy from the alternator....

      Alright so If you cut a piece of cardboard to the same shape as the mounting bracket and u fit it into the rear view mirror after you've unscrewed it u can shove it back on to the metal plate and that will help eliminate the tilt.

      I have 2 Kicker comp Rs in separate prefab enclosure. they can't hit low and are very peaky..im looking for a good box design with a big port in the middle. Ive looked around a lot online and haven't been able to find anything specific other than http://www.caraudiofabrication.com/box-designs . I would be willing to pay the 65$ for the box design but is it worth it? I can use all of my trunk space so size isn't an issue.

      Helloooooo
      Just to be clear i literally know nothing about car audio installations and i need help so i came here.
      I have a renault clio hatchback 2007 and i am wishing to install the skar audio spx-65c component system to the vehicle
      i dont want it to be runnning very loud, so i would like to stick to the stock amplifier if that is possible with the components i have brought (but only if it would work). Also how would i go about wiring up the external crossovers to the items that come stock in the car?
      and finally...
      what will i have to change / buy (besides from the mountings in the door) to make all the of this work?
      any help is greatly appreciated
