more batts or alternator??

Post by baaudio on Sun Feb 26, 2012 1:22 am

as some of you may know im running 2 xs d6500 batts on my stock 130 amp alternator, and im running the saz-3000d at .7 daily. with the xs power group buy ill be able to pick up a xp2500 or xp3000. maybe two, but only if i sell one of my d6500s. but ive been getting quotes on alternators lately too and theyve been about the same price as two batts on the deal. so my question is.... keep both my d6500s and upgrade to a 250-270 amp alt in about a month, or buy another battery??

im thinking of holding out for an alternator and keep running only two batteries, that helps me class wise for some organizations.

Have you gotten a quote from Mike Singer? I've heard his alts are pretty good quality. If I were you though I'd do the alt first. You're gonna have to upgrade it eventually anyway so you might as well get it out of the way.

Ya I'm thinking alternator myself. I've got enough battery for all the power Im running. But it takes power to make power. And Im thinking Singers got my business. I've seen nothing but praise for his alts.

I've seen the group buy posted on SMD and CACO. It hasn't started yet, but it's basically 15% off the new XP line thru audiosavings plus free shipping.

SSA has 10% off a couple brands going on right now, XS included.

Don't remember if they have the new line or not up yet.
