Hello, I just have a couple basic questions on what to look for in a new battery. I know there is plenty of topics on batteries but I am still a bit confused on a couple things. First off let me say my car has stock everything right now, but in the future my plans are to run 2 FI Q 15" and about 2500-3000RMS. I already have 1 run of KnuKonceptz 0 gauge for my 900RMS system now.
So my battery is original with the car (2006) and is getting harder to start and I know I need to replace it soon. I was looking into Optimas as people say they make great starting batteries but others say they suck for running systems compared to other batteries. So then I was leaning towards getting a Kinetik battery which from a lot of reports I hear is a horrible starting battery but is good for the trunk.
I was thinking about getting like an Optima Yellow Top for the front... and then when I wanted to build up my system get some XS Power batts for the trunk. What is involved with running 2 different types of batteries? I always heard this was a big no no.
I am not wanting to spend much more than $200ish right now. Money is pretty tight... I just don't want to go blow $80 on a regular battery from walmart when I can use a good battery in the future.
Thanks for any suggestions and all help!
