Added inline fuse between battery and amp.
Used all RF 4 Gauge all copper power , and 0 gauge ground.
Installed battery inside center seat console.
Prior to XS Battery, lights would dim severely, and Amp would sometimes go into Voltage protection when the power dropped below 12 volts. Bass was hitting hard, but on deep long bass notes, amp shut off for a couple of seconds.
With XS Battery, Lights do not dim at all, Amp does not cut off at all, have ability to turn RF Bass Remote knob to 100% and head unit volume to 30 without any clipping or distortion. Bass is very hard and deep now, Plastic overhead trim that houses roof lights now looks like it is gonna shake off the headliner in the truck. Mirrors are now useless when bass hits.

How big of a capacitor are you running?

I would assume he has no capacitor because of the battery. Idk how big his system is but caps don't usually perform as well as a second battery

No Caps.
Im running RF Punch P500-2 in mono at 2ohms to dual 10" MTX Thunderforms under rear seat. ( Want to replace subs soon )
Also RF Punch P400-4 providing 100X4 to each JL Audio 6X9 in my doors

The XS Battery powers the P500-2 only. Before I installed the XS, my battery gauge would drop to below 12v when volume was above 7 and any heavy bass notes would be played.
Now the gauge sits right at 13v, no movement at all, and Bass hits much harder, no lights dim, and the amp has not had 1 issue. I also noticed the P500-2 runs much cooler. Before the amp would get very hot. Maybe with dedicated power source, amp doesnt have to work as hard.. Not sure about the last part, but makes sense to me.

Wow nice setup! Ive got some questions and excuse my ignorance. Im going to update my stereo and want to get a new Pioneer head unit, 6x9's in the front doors, 6.5's in the rear doors, 3.5's in the dash and single 12 inch sub. My first question is if you have a 4 channel amp with 7 speakers what do the other 3 speakers run off? My second question is if i have a amp that runs 250 W RMS X 2 @ 2 OHMS should i bridge it to a 4 OHM 750 W RMS sub? Thanks for any help!

ss4luck, how do you have all of those batteries in your truck. Could you post picture? Do you still have a back seat?
I dont have my truck right now I will get you pics when I get it back.


I have 30% of my rear seat left (behind the drivers seat). All of the batteries are on the floor behind the passangers seat sat next to eachother infront of my box, which is a 4th order holding 2 15s at 5,000W (hence running 5 D3100s to keep power on tap for them lol)
