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.

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.
