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....

      I'm trying to set up subs in my 2002 Chevy Malibu for the first time. I cant find the firewall to save my life, we found it on the outside of the car going to the battery but have no idea where it goes to. We've tried to run a metal coat hanger through it to see where it goes but it didnt seem to work. Does anyone have a clue on where it is? Any help is very appreciated.

      i have the crescendo pwx 6.5 these are really good but i dont like that i limit them at 5600 hertz and want speakers more on the higher vocal area where theres 
      https://gpcaraudio.com/deaf-bonce-apocalypse-ap-m60a-v2/
      im not sure if ill hear a big difference or not where the deaf-bounce goes to 14000 hertz. would i get about the same amount of midbass or more with the deaf bouce? 
      the pwx aint in any sort of enclosure its just in my door, someone told me it has to be properly enclosed to get any sort of real midbass but i feel my sub handles all the bass so whats the real point of midbass? might as well have my mids do some clear vocals.
      its being powered by a ppi900.4 at 4 ohms its suppose to be pushing 145rms.
      another question is if my pair of tweeters and mid speakers are running active to my amp how does my head unit know whats a mid and whats a tweeter when i do the crossover through the headunit? 
      like if i set my crossover for my highs as low as 5600 and my midbass to 5600 to take over how does it know which speaker or channel is suppose to be at what hertz?
      and are bassblockers caps necessary for my tweeters?

      I'm getting 2 rocksford fosgate P2D2's and am looking for a somewhat budget friendly amp. My budgets around 750 for everything and would naturally stay around the low side of it but I don't want to cut down on quality by any means. I've had one set up before but didn't comprise it myself so any tips and knowledge would not but turned away, so any information about anything is welcome.
