why do people hate on optima yellow tops

Recommended Posts

a lot of people i have talked to on forums say to stay away from optima yellow tops, why?

i guess because they have been in alot of world champion cars over the years. thats all i can think of.... of the people who hate on optima though, ive done more with optima than most of them will ever do with their precious xs power batts and kinetik batts.

yeah i know they are a tad expensive but i thought it was a performance issue everybody was having with them

all these kids these days are so hung up on all the bandwagon stuff ya know. i love optima stuff. i know that if im doing a show and i have a batt kick the bucket on me, i can just find an autozone and get an exact replacement. try that with kinetik or xs power. not trying to say that those arent good batts, because they are excellent batts.

Very good point there, unless your luggin around extra 75lb. batteries youd be fucked, but you could just go to an autoparts store.

2 weeks ago "In wikipedia i found that this sub in 1997's unofficial private SPLdB drag was burned down the dB meter! The dB was over 300 and the system burned down. Actually, 300dB is only about ¼ of this prototype sound level."

I don't know anything about guns... so when I saw the title I thought, "I wonder what kind of woofer the AR-15 is?"

*laughs*

Twisted, I would stay away from that guy, the next video he uploads could be you tied up in his living room while being forced to watch him "swag and cook" in person, lol.

reason i dont like optimas is i had one go bad on me fairly quickly. it ended up at 6v and killed my main battery. Right now i have a GNB

you can cook bacon shirtless if you're not a pussy...lol

not hatin, but am i wrong here it looks as if the amp is not grounded its hooked directly to the battery. it that the way it should be.

This is the first time i have heard anything bad about yellow tops to he honest. :clapping:

i have heard plenty about 'em, but ive never seen it. i have an optima red top that is 8 years old. my friend had it in his car for 3 years, and would run it down flat ass dead at car shows every week because he would leave his car switched on all day playing movies. i used it in my car for 5 years, everyday pulling the voltage down to 10 and sometime lower, and it was fine. it sat dead under my driveway for 2 years. i have been cycling it the last week. when i started it was at 0.4 volts, not it holds 12.5 volts.
