Default Smaller Dimension Batteries?

I've got very little trunk space left but would like to drop an extra battery or two in. Are there some smaller sized batteries that would be cheaper but still perform well? I will measure my space in a few days once the box goes in. I just know it will be very little.

What are your requirements? What does your system consist of? I have an Optima yellow top up front of my truck and a Kinetik 800 under the back seat and have a little over 2k and have zero issues.

Yea. Need to know how much power your running, and final load of your sub(s)
Stock alt? How many AH is your alt? What battery is under the hood? How hard do you bump your system?

I should be running between 1500 and 2.5k or less. 2.5 k is pushing it though. Probably overall around 2k.


as for dimensions, like i said I'm not sure. My box has to be assembled in the trunk, and until then i wont know.

I have a stock alt that i believe is a 110 amp. wussy little focus. Stock battery up front. Probably upgrade that first?

Start off with the biggest battery you can fit up front and make sure to do the Big 3.

You could get two XS D975 batteries and put one under each seat if the will fit and not even have to worry about trunk space...

I have the big 3 done. Its been done for a while, too. If all goes well, I will be running a stetsom ST600.4 and a Cerwin Vega Stroker 2k. But neither of the people replied :[

I guess i should look at batteries before i blow a ton on amps.

Yep, start with the largest up front and go from there. I posted what I have on a little over 2K. Stock Nissan Titan alternator as well. Oh, and it's a smaller yellow top also.

Like stated before, get the biggest battery up front. If you can afford it get a d1200 from xs. That's a little power house battery!! I had a d1200 and d975 holding me down for 3k rms with no light dimming at all!!
