PostSubject: Need some advice on power source!   Thu Mar 08, 2012 6:55 pm

My New amp should be here by monday at the latest. It is supposed to push 1700 rms at 2ohms. What type of battery or secondary power source should i get, and where is a good place to buy?

Any advice appreciated.

Make sure you have clean bare metal connections and tight. IMO you should of got a better battery and no need for a cap ever.

O gauge is good up to around 3000 watts. NSB batts are some killer batts.

Batcap 3000 or 4000 is what I like. And 1600 watts would be fine on 2 gauge honestly possibly 4 gauge depending on the wire.

Will it work for you? Probably, I have used yellow tops in the past and when you are wanting the most out of your system they just have too much voltage drop and slow recovery time.
