best!

October 7, 2011

When you replace your starting battery with this.. your system will sound much more clean and clear, your car will run better but doesn't play your system long when your car is off because it isn't hard to kill these batteries. If you want a good system, then you got to feed it clean power! I recommend this battery to any and everyone!

I only actually used the battery for about a month because the vehicle was put into storage . However it seemed to work well and was the perfect application for my needs as I needed the battery to fit in a very restricted spot.

Great battery

July 31, 2012

Awesome addition to my current setup. I have a stock battery under the hood with a stock alternator. I am running a JBL GTO14001 amp and have 0 gauge wire running from the good to the trunk where I have this battery. Awesome buy! Lights never even think about dimming when they were practically shutting off without it. Makes me feel like all my electronics are much safer. I love every bit of this thing. Lots of power!

I'm running a Boston Acoustics SPG-5555-2 on an alpine MRP-1000M @ 2 ohm with 1000watts rms. Wow no headlight dim whatsoever. I haven't even done the big 3 upgrade yet. Just running on a stock alternator in my 1994 honda civic.

Works Like a Charm

August 24, 2011

I couldn't ask for a better product. It does exactly what it's supposed to.. provide a ridiculous amount of power that would be an excellent contribution to any car audio system. I've had the product for about six months now, and I've been using it to power an Alpine MRP-M1000, as well as a Hifonics HFi100.2. I haven't had a single problem yet. Stock alternator, voltage up front doesn't move even at full tear. Kinetik is a brand that has been tested time and time again, and a brand that you can trust provides a quality product.

Sonic was great to deal with as always. Shipped fast. No problems on that front.

Bottom line... Get this.

I dont have much room in my Pajero Jr. and running 2000+ watts just made it harder to find room for batteries. I swapped this out for my starter battery and no more headlight dimm, but i like to play for a long time, so just to make sure i got enough clean power im getting 3 HC 600's just for a lil' extra kick!!!

I bought this product not that it stopped my light from dimming but it made my system sound cleaner and stopped my amplifiers from going to power protect. I need to get a bigger alternator but when I am parked and engine off my lights do not dim I am running almost 3000 watts

March 21, 2011

Got this battery hooked up in my trunk and let me tell you right now, this was the best thing i could have done to my system hands down. Have the PAC 200 relay connecting both my batteries in my 04 Avalon with 0 gauge going to my amp. Wasn't sure at first but definitely glad I made this addition to my system. Did everything myself and it straight BANGS now!!!
