  1. All, I currently have 3 Crescendo F31 Batteries. I plan to add 3 more F31s, the ones I currently have are about a year old. Is it ok to add 3 new ones to the mix? what are the cons? I could also separate them since I will also have 2 370XP DC Power alts that I could separate into 2-3 battery banks each powering a BC5500D. But I want to keep them all together if possible. Help is appreciated!
  2. I'm getting a Crescendo BC5500 and are upgrading my electrical. Here in in Australia WE DO NOT HAVE XS POWER BATTERIES. Thought I'd make that clear I always mention it but people always suggest XS Power to me but we don't have them. My best choices are either these: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/290764589407?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649#ht_1982wt_1163 or Optima Batteries which we do have and which I'm currently using.
  3. Some of you might know I recently purchased one of these: I'll soon be running a pair of Fi SP4 18" Subwoofers in my 1995 VW Golf GL. I noticed these are 18v capable, I've never thought of running an 18v setup but I was sitting at my desk and came up with an idea to run the amp at 18v. The batteries are rated 800CCA, 90aH, but have been tested to output much more. People claim these beat Kinetik's, Optima's and XS Power batteries. They are also super lightweight so I can use more than most other batteries and not weigh my car down too much. Here's what they look like... lol
  4. I am curious to what the most draw on the stock alternator that there has been. Trying to decide if I can get away with just upgrading batteries for now, and get a H/O alternator down the road. Plus I think it would be cool to see what the biggest system on stock alternator has been. Try to include: Amps put out by the stock alternator The batteries used What amplifiers Voltage drop while going full tilt If the big 3 (4,5 etc) has been done If there has been multiple runs of 1/0 Any other information that would that would be beneficial to know would be great.
  5. Here in Australia we have a company called Fullriver and I've narrowed down two different models. Which one appears to be the most suited to use in a Car Audio application? These are called DC-120B's: http://www.fullriver.com/products/admin/upfile/DC120-12B.pdf These are called HC100's: http://www.fullriver.com/products/admin/upfile/HC100.pdf We can get XS Power here in Australia but they are fairly expensive, but if they are considerably better I could consider spending the extra money.
  6. Sold the car, so I stripped it out. No Trades. Here it is right before I took it all out. Had to try the gopro3 Prices are shipped 4 Skar ZVX D1 15s about a month old and played on a Skar 4500 at 2 ohm (so maybe 2500 RMS to all 4) $350 shipped EACH (will be shipped in original boxes) Specs: http://skaraudio.com/subwoofers/zvx-series/zvx-15 Skar 4500.1 (been repaired by amp medics and works great.

SOLD here is a vid of the new 4500. Had to unbox it. I'll get pics when I get back home, once again lol. No trades and prices are pretty firm. You want more pics, let me know.
