Default Lets talk 2V and 4V cells

havent been on here in a while, so im looking threw threads and i see people are adding 2v cells in there system making it a 14V bank, so can you guess shed some light on this? what type of cells are used? whats the benefit of using them besides 14v? ive heard that mixing these with other batts would not be good, being that current draw would kill the smaller batts quick, much like using triple A batteries in series to make 16v, but just because its 16V dont mean it can take a big current draw. can anyone clarify this?

Your analogy is right and you could have answered your own question with it too..

I'll give you another one.

When series-ing batteries, the ONLY thing that changes is voltage.

So by saying that.. let's look at a 12v battery.

a 12v battery has 6 cells in series.

That means that each cell can do the same current value.

that means, if you take a Odyssey PC2150, EACH CELL can output 2,150A for 5 sec, 5000A for 0.1sec, etc...

So, when looking for 2v cells, make sure you match similar ratings to your existing batteries.

Also, i would only advise doing this for competition only. If for daily, i'd HIGHLY recommend putting a solenoid in between EVERY 12v to 2v cell combination you have to prevent your batts and cells from killing each other in the long run.

so would adding 2v cells with a strong 12v batt be as good as buying a xs 14v batt

Xs 14v battery is only 50-60ah at ~2400-2600 SCA.

If u have a 12v batt and 2v cell with ampacity rating greater than that,
Then it's very likely to be more powerful.

so how would i go by when it comes to matching 2v cells to a 12V batt? AH rating or what? would it beok to wire more than one 2vcell in parallel to increase rating then wire the last cell in series with the 12v? or how would that all work anyway?

Id be matching max amps/ short circuit rating.
AH isn't going to be a good spec to match with.

Series only. Parallel is pointless and expensive.

Don't waste your time.

I think it's probably because that sub is not moving enough to allow it to cool.. Id turn the gain up a bit so it moves more for cooling reasons.. That's why it's hard on subs to be underpowered..
