So, I had taken my truck into a family friend's mechanic shop to check my batteries and diagnose an electrical leech in my truck if there was one. So, both Stinger SPP1500DC's are gone. I was hoping at least once was still good, but no.

Also, the leech is my alarm. I have an old Viper that was installed in 2014 I think. I forget which one it is, but it's got an app that shows you on a map where the truck is, and you can set up alerts. Stuff like that. Anyway..... I don't think with the truck off it should be pulling almost 200 milliamps by itself. I don't know jack about alarms, so I'll have to find a good stereo shop to take it to. Probably just have them rip it out and install a new one. 

As far as the batteries go, I'm planning on buying another Stinger SPP1500DC for under the hood (I already have the battery tender for that battery. It was expensive) and 2 Full Throttle 1150's for the back. I know there's probably better voltage solutions than 3 AGM batteries, but I don't know enough about lithium or super caps to feel comfortable installing those in this build. Maybe further down the road as I learn more.

Took advantage of labor day sales and snagged some more needed pieces. Slowly but surely, picking up all the pieces I need. I'm itching to start!

I follow them on Instagram. In a sea full of mediocrity of car audio shops around here, they look like they actually know what there doing. I'm going to install this one myself though. Hopefully I don't screw it up too bad
