. ive ran my aq on 2 bullsh!t optima batteries with a stock 80a alt and it saw 10.8 volts for a half hour at .33 ohms. no way is my amp cheap junk.....deka has been around for a long time. discovery. im drawing a blank to the other batteries. but they all have been proven to be great batteries. not saying XS isnt great. they just arent something special to be worth the high price
Running a "good enough" battery is not the same as a "very good" battery. You need to learn that distinction. You could get rid of two turd batteries and put one good battery in it's place.
Unless you have owned and tested both, your comments are nothing but "this shit is cheaper and works "just as good" as XS, even though I've never owned XS so I have no basis for comparison"
The fact of the matter is that you don't know shit. You are cheap and buy whatever is cheap. XS makes ridiculously good batteries. So much so that I swapped out batts in both of my trucks because of that.
Further, it's not just the batteries that make XS a good company, and worth the extra coin. It's the same reasons that everybody loves sundown: customer service. People can get 1kw, 2kw, 3kw, etc. amps anywhere. Why does sundown continue to sell so many anyways? Because of good CS, good products, support for the industry and continuing R&D.
You ever try to get a battery warrantied through whatever jank ass place you buy your batts from? Do they even have warranties? Can you call up the owners of the company and bullshit with them about their products?
You ever hang out with the owners of the batts you run? Do any of these shitty cheap companies support OUR hobbies?
That last part is what really sometimes bothers me about people being so god damn cheap. Everybody wants shows to go to, but people don't want to support the companies that are supporting these shows. Not only that, then these people have the balls to say that these companies suck BECAUSE they don't support shows. Why should they? All of you guys are off buying other crap, claiming it's just as good (with no evidence) and not giving that company any kind of return on their investment that gives us a place to play.
Nope, they run their subs off garbage audiopipe amps, wired up with welding cable, powered off of their duralast batts.
Support the companies that support us, or watch this industry (and car audio shows) die.
CACO now stands for "Cheap Ass Car Owners".
