Trying keep my install simple.i really dont want to upgrade alt.because of the pcm.was going to go with one or maybe two group 48agm batts.but thinking it might be to hard on alt to keep up..then i seen this sb500.was wondering if a single sb500 would be a better option.my system consist of one ampere 2k and two 150.4.no parking lot demos, just a daily.any input or thoughts?ive emailed xs waiting to gear back.but like opions thanksScreenshot_2018-01-16-12-56-08.thumb.png.2a04845764b18972422312afe8fc9bf0.png

i wouldn't think there'd be any issue with a jump. I have exchanged emails with XS and they have balancing circuitry to keep everything level. here's the thread they started about their "SuperCells" https://www.stevemeadedesigns.com/board/topic/194860-xs-power-supercell-ultracap-q-a/

I thought there was another thread or two, but I couldn't find it.

Keep in mind your PCM controlled alt will stop charging occasionally so your cap bank will discharge just like a battery will.  If you dont mind having the battery-light on, then you can get a 'single wire' regulator on your alt so that you charge at 14.2-15V (depending on temperature) all the time.

Or you can unplug your battery current sensor and charge at 13.8V all the time.  You wont get a battery light in this case.

I would add battery if you leave your alt alone, but thats just my opinion from my experience dealing with a PCM controlled alt with (2) AA5Ks at 0.35ohm.

Having a battery light on will irritate me bad..im curious on this unplug sensor though i could live with 13.8 ..? 

 

My question i guess would a single sb500 be better then a single agm xs agm under the hood.? If go by watts the 500 is rated 4000 and xs agm is 2 or 3000?

I think with a solid agm up front and that sb500 you should be solid at 2k. But that is just a guess honestly. I have no experience with them.

Trying stay with one batt under hood.thank you though ill thumb throug that thread

Contemplating picking one of these up myself when the tax return comes in. Probably go for the  47 myself and save some space.

With a 4000w max rating on the 500F a person would probably want to half that for rms power right?

I have a system total of 2400w rated rms stepping up to something in the 1000F series would probably be unnecessary ?  My only reason for considering the 1000F is i could probably ditch the two group 65 AGM's in the bed of my truck and save about 100lbs of weight.
