I'm in the market for H.O. alternator and battery(-ies).


Recommended Posts

Here's information about what I got thus far:


Truck: Frontier, Nissan ex cab 1999 (2.4L engine) (see picture below)
Engine: All stock at the moment (Big three will be done soon)
Subwoofer: A single Solo X 12"
Amp 1: ZX2500.1 (birthsheet @2,752wrms)
Amp 2: ZX350.4 (birthsheet @ 449wrms)
Speakers: KM Components
Type of setup: Daily driver
Budget: unlimited

I've searched on XS power site to see what's the biggest battery can be put under the hood and this is what it came up to me: BCI Group # 24.

Question #1: Will this single battery be significant for a whole thing (including truck and the system) or am I require to have at least the second battery in the rear? Reason why I ask is because solo X 12" only sees no more than ~2,000 watts (according to the kicker manual) and my speakers only sees no more than 180 wrms.

Question #2: I was looking at the price of chargers and my heart stopped: $300+ for a charger?! XD Is there any cheap (but good) charger out there? I do not want to void warranty or anything if unproper charging the battery.

Question #3: I must be blind but I did not see any H.O alt on XS site. Do you have it for sale?

Thanks for your time reading and answering my questions. I really appreciate it.

Question 2:

Why can't you use a Schumacher charger or something similar? I have always had good luck with mine, charging my 12v agm batteries. Maybe save on the charger, use the rest of the money towards another XS battery.

XS does not offer alternators.

You can always go to dealers like me for both.

The D2400 is rated to supply 4000w. -1000w for engine/car, so 3000w to stereo

Your system will consume about 4200w based on loss in amplifier efficiency.

So here is a possible solution for you.

D2400 up front

+ XP 2000 in the back

That will give you good starting and good reserve for your setup.

Your combine AH is about 167AH, so any alt larger than that will do nicely.

So add a 220A Mechman I offer and you will be good to go.

If you want to add a charger, XS intellichargers go for $199

Need any more detailed info and PM me.

I hate those schumacher chargers. I wont ever charge my XS batteries with them. they charge up past 15.5v and I've heard my last batteries boiling. I have two different chargers from them and they both do it. I only use a little battery tender or my XS charger.

Check out DCpower and mechman for an alt.

since money is no object, throw an extra battery in the back too. it'll definitely help.

If I answered you in a well mannered, informative way, you asked a good question or had a good attitude. If I was an asshole, you asked a stupid question or you had a fucktard attitude... or I was in a bad mood.
