  1. So I'm planning on running a bc5500 in the future and i have a few questions about what batteries i'll be needing in the trunk. Currently i've got an XS power d1200 under the hood and a DC power 270 amp alt with big 3 and what not. my question is what size batteries should i go for in the back if i'm looking to run the bc5500 at 1 ohm (5500 watts)? Also how many runs of 1/0 gauge should i have going to the rear batteries? I was thinking of xp 3000 but my voltage often runs at 15 volts and even up to 15.4v on cold days and i've heard that xp series doesnt like anything above 15v? Might a D series be better?
  2. hi everyone. I recently installed some new subs and amp. 2-15" RE Audio XXX and a MA Audio HK-4000D. Heres the problem.Amp is going into protection mode when i open it up all the way due to (as far as I can tell) voltage dropping.It holds 13.3v most of the time but certain tones drop it below 12v shutting it down. Ive done the Big 3. Got 3 Kinetik batteries .2 HC800's under the hood and a HC3800 in the trunk. currently running stock alternator 120 amp. there is no available H.O. alternator made for my car(2002 hyundia XG350L) looking into having my stock alt beefed up. there is 1\0 gauge rockford fosgate power cable throughout. Also something weird,when the trunk is open it will shut down at half volume.trunk closed almost never shuts down... Any Ideas?? Thanks
  3. I'm adding another amp to my car, i have a zx1000.1 mono for the subs already and im adding the dx400.4 for the speakers. Should i expect a voltage drop, and if so how sufficient will it be? Right now with only the mono i have about 14.4-.7 volts on average when everything is running and turned up. I have an 01 cadillac deville which already has some stock beefy wiring to it. Stock electrical wiring, but I will add another battery as my next upgrade. What can I expect voltage wise when i add the second amp? Thanks
  4. Hey seen a lot of differing opinions on this was jw what the "up to date recommendation" is with respect to the d5100r and new xp series batteries
  5. We just did a huge production run of our popular adjustable voltage boost module so that we could run a 25% off SALE !! Now you can have control over your charging voltage for just $75 !! For those of you who don't know, the AVBM is a simple module that installs in 5 minutes, plugs in between the alternator and OEM alternator harness. It has a dial in it, so that you can easily adjust your vehicle's charging voltage from 14.0 to 19.5 volts by simply turning a dial !! This unit will work on stock or aftermarket alternators, as long as an OEM type internal regulator is in the alternator. Compatible with 12V, 14V or 16v batteries. (Make sure you check with your vehicle manufacturer and equipment providers to determine what a safe charging voltage is for your vehicle)We currently offer 3 different models: AVBMOVAL - Fits Most 1996-2004 GM vehicles with oval 4 pin plug on the alternator (CS130D, AD244, AD237, Bosche, Valeo, etc...) AVBMRECT - Fits Most 1986-1995 GM vehicles with rectangular 4 pin plug on the alternator (CS130, CS121, CS144, etc...) AVBM6G - Fits most Ford Powerstrokes and other Ford Vehicles with non-PCM controlled 6G alternator (call for application details) For $75, this is a really cool part, and can immediately improve the state of charge on your batteries, amplifier performance, power window speed, headlight brightness, etc... Just give us a call to get one on the way! 1-888-MECHMAN 865-522-6166 [email protected] The AVBMOVAL is currently listed on E-bay here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Adjustable-voltage-boost-module-regulator-AVBM-02-03-04-Suburban-Tahoe-5-3-6-0-/221178819593?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item337f48f409&vxp=mtr Video of how it works here:
  6. I have heard a lot of people saying that if you let your voltage drop too often or too much it can cause your amp to go bad after a wile. Is this true??
