you can cut out a drop in space, pointed to in the picture, you can get battery boxes, that they use for race cars, they protect the battery, but have a small tube, to remove the gasses from the container...

if anyone wants to know my system is two elemental design 12" a series subs and a Tsunami DB 1800 amp. The amp says 1800 rms so i would be running about 900 wrms to each sub. What would you suggest i get for that to prevent draining my battery too bad?

In theory, couldnt you just replace your current battery with a optima and maybe upgrade your alternator?? I thought that even if you did have a an extra battery, you technically would be still overworking your alternator, and therefore causing extreme wear. I could be wrong.


My car might be slow, but at least it looks nice!
