battery isolators, do I need one??

21 posts in this topic

Ok so I have a brand new 3 month old Everstart Maxx 75N up front and I'm going to put two XS D1200 in the back.

My question is do I need a battery isolator?

And my other question is do I hook my 1/0 wire to the front battery or to the alternator?

No isolator needed. You run 1/0 from your alt to your front batt and then from that front batt to the rear batts.

Ok the isolator in my opinio no. About the 0gauge do the big 3 wich is 0 from battery to alternator and upgrading ur negatives to be specific it explains it better in the electrical section and use 0gaugd from the front to the back batteries

No isolator needed unless you plan on playin music without the engine running for extended periods of time (not recomended)

Fact: Battery Isolaters are only needed when you plan to play your system of a separate battery with the vehicle off. The Isolater then wont allow the stereo to drain which ever battery is being isolated so the vehicle can still be started.
