Hi, I want to know what's the best way to connect 12 shuriken 16 batteries

Here's a diagram showing how I'm planning on mounting them. (9) batteries connected with buss bars and (3) more batteries in fron of them.

This is the only way I can mount them due to space, and I want to know which of the following options is better. I have 2 ground on chassis and 3 1/0 from alternator

Bank:


Option 1:



Option 2:



Option 3: (loop)



Any other ways or ideas are welcomed, thanks !!

3rd shares the load the most evenly

I'd say option one. But I would spread the amp connections. Don't have them coming off the same battery.

but the off to the side batts arent connected to each other.
id do 3. even though 2 and 3 are the same just with different spaces
they connect together on the buss bar, the less connections stacked on top of one another the less potential for problems(loose connections from vibration,corrosion ect..)

How aren't they connected? All the batteries are connected to a common buss bar. If you take the batteries and rotate them sideways they would be connected in the same way as if they were in the row.

Thanks for your opinions ! I'm leaning more towards option 1 or 2, the difference in 2 is that the 3 batts are also connected in parallel between them in addition to the bars

well here it is, Option 1:






The AQ 20k was modded to run at 16+ volts. We were testing this thing out, we'll post results later :D:D

I would spread the wires going to the amp out a little more. The batteries towards the end may not get discharged as evenly the way it is now.

For now I will share this pic, it was done with 2 18" AQ HDC3 copper coils wired at 2.0 ohms and 52 hz



box is basically "stock", no work done, no flaring or anything. The final install will be 4 18" HDC3 at 1.0 ohms for bumping, it should do at least 157's or maybe 158
