I've had this in my truck for the past 3 years and its still running strong. I have 2000W of mmats and Rockford Fosgate amps running off of this and theres barely any dimming even with an 80amp alternator.

This is an excellent battery. I have an 04 silverado single cab. I have 2 amps. One is a hedonic Brutus BRX 1600.1D and the other is a power acoustic PS800. The Brutus is drawing 1200 rms amps @ 2 ohms and the PA is drawing 150 rms amps x 2. No more light dimming and volts do not go below 13.7. Thats not bad considering I have the factory alternator that puts out 105 amps. No cons. Thanks again Sonic

This thing is a beast. I have an 04 silverado single cab with a factory 1025 amp alternator. I have 2 amps hooked up, a power acoustic ps800 and a Hispanics BRX1600.1D. The brutus is pulling 1200 rms amps @ 2 ohms and the PA is pulling 150 rms x 2 @ 4 ohms and my volts do not go lower than 13.5. My lights do not fluctuate any more. The battery along with the big 3 upgrade I had already done solved all my voltage problems. I would definately recommend this battery. No cons at all. Thanks again Sonic

Kinetik 1800!

March 24, 2014

This battery was bigger than expected which was not a problem in my case. Definitely does the job and keeps the voltage up. I personally use thus battery for under the hood but would be a great battery for someone who needs that extra juice. The price is very affordable and as I can see it's been dropping! Great product currently run 3 kinetiks and have great voltage.

Great for Jeeps Too

September 6, 2013

running this in the trunk of my cherokee (it fits right in the cubby hole on the right side with a little cutting of plastic.) with 2/0 wire to the front. i have a variety of amps totally of about 1900w rms. this thing fires up the old 4.0L without dropping below 11 volts under cranking. i had this in my last car as well, and had a newbie mistake... dropped a ground upgrade wire on the positive terminal, in which is promptly destroyed. These batteries are crazy even compared to the yellow top i had before it. floating voltage typically sits around 12.5 - 12.7 without engine running or anything turned on.

the only thing i dont like about this are the screw in terminals. no matter how hard i try, when tightening them down, they still move after. they loosen way too easily. i havent stripped them out, they just still turn after the bolt is tight.

"THE" battery

April 19, 2012

I put high output alternator (Power Bastard) and needed to upgrade battery. Bought the Kinetik after doing a lot of studying a lot of different types and makes. Decided on this and it runs my entire system with no glitches.
Pro: Powerful/does what it is designed for/Easy to install/buy Kinetik posts that are not included, makes connection for big three upgrade a lot easier.
Con: Posts don't come with battery.
I would totally recommend this battery!

Solid performance, good product

September 7, 2011

I bought and installed this battery about 6 months ago and I haven't had any problems with it. It's one of those products where you don't think about it until it causes you issues. I also have a smaller stinger battery in my trunk that this connects to - I'm 'overpowering' my system just to keep it performing at peak performance so my usage may not be typical but I thought I'd submit a review anyway.
