the links are no good....

as a side note when you do post links click on the litle globe next to the image of the mountain... then insert the link in the box that pops up... that way we just have to click on it instead of having to copy/paste///

im looking for the least voltage drop posible, so basically the question i should be asking is what is the diff in voltage drop between one battery with 2 15' lengths of 0 gauge, or 2 batteries with 2 very short runs of 0 gauge from back batt to amp

you need something with a lot of reserve capacity. we have a guy running strapped d10s off a group 34 and he loses 2v on a burp and hes hitting 149.2 right now on TL he has 8 runs of 4ga

if the 2 smaller batts equal the capacity of the 1 big bat then i think you get the same results regardless... but i might be way off... the length of wire just changes how far the power has to run before it makes it to the amp...

kinetik makes crazy batteries, so does hawker. they are designed just for stereos so you really cant go wrong... are you building an SPL car? if so be sure to check the size limits for the class you are planning to run in. Also most street classes dont let you have more then 1 battery... so check that aswell..
