Default Interesting Battery Discussion.

So I've been holding off on ordering batts because I've had the following going through my mind:

How come I see some people running a D3100 for 4000 watts, but others running 3 D975s?

Also, I've seen large banks of D2700s.

So, what I've been debating is whether to run a couple D3100s, or maybe 5 D1200s. Some say having more smaller batteries gives you faster discharge.

A given fact that I've been told around the forum is that AH is useless in car audio, so what rating do you pay attention to when buying a battery? Max Amps?

Let me know what you guys think about this.

Matt.

But thanks for chiming in. Your opinion is duly noted.

When buying a battery I typically just go with a reputable company that I KNOW will deliver. XS Power happens to be a great example.
Or go with batteries that other people have had good results with.

Obviously I'm buying XS Power, but thats not the question.

Were comparing multiples small batts to fewer big ones.

From what I have seen on xspower battery chart is when you combine multiple batteries your doubling there wattage or something along those lines as compared to just one battery.

look at the chart

XS Power Battery Wattage Scale - Car Audio Classifieds

look at one D3100 wattage then look at three D1200's.

now if you have the money and space imagine multiple D3100's. But that is more or less whats happening.

Hmmm. Maybe nathan will chime in on this, but if it's true, I'll get a pair of D3100s and call it a day.

I'm interested in this too but don't have enough knowledge to give an input. I'm literally right at the crossroads though of getting extra batts, so this will help me as well. Good question!

2 d3100s = 220 ah
5 d1200s = 220 ah

You get A LOT more CA with 5 d1200s though

2 d3100s = 2720 CA
5 d1200s = 3625 CA
