What equipment are you running? Have you done the big 3? What's your voltage like now at idle, full tilt?

To find what battery fits your vehicle go to an auto parts site (advance, autozone, et.al.) and search for your specific vehicle. Or, you know, get a measuring tape.

Battery is cheaper and a short term solution. Alternator cost more but is a long term solution. Answer above questions too please, it would help us help you.

I would first get the big 3 done if you haven't yet. Then get a big agm batt in and get the wet cell out. Then get either a HO alt or another batt.

But do answer our questions like big three. Is it done or not? And what kind of power are u planning on putting on those subs.

Don't connect your xs power batt when you still have a stock wet cell up front. U will damage ur batts.

What I'm pretty sure we're all asking is how much power on each sub? Like 750 rms each?

that is not totally correct.. even ask xs power they will tell you SHORT term no harrm will come to the agm battery..
but after months of having a wetcell and agm hooked together will bring the agm down and shorten its life
its called parasitic draw..
