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.

Killer Kinetik

April 26, 2010

I ordered two of these to upgrade and replace an Optima Yellow Top an add one to the trunk, immediatly after swapping just the front battery I did not experience fading of my lights or sound performance. With addition of second battery it's not a question to the stability of the power supply. Over 2X the output for the same price i paid for my yellow top, a must have.

Kinetic 1800

June 10, 2014

I got fosgate 1000-1 and 400-4 using all 1000 rms for sub and about 360 rms for other amp. I have a 2013 fusion which is canbus and has a computer controlled alternator. So before battery it was horrible playing a full volume as it would make idling ruff and subwoofer would cut out. Now with battery no more subwoofer cutting out and minimal idle bounce. If I can re do it I would try the 2400 even though 1800 recommended for what I have but it does not consider the type of car I have. Bass sounds louder than before. One issue are the post run small in diameter making it do difficult to use the basic connections I had so would be purchasing some new ones as they are slipping off.

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.

You cannot find a better battery for the bread, and free shipping to boot. I'm using as a cell to store solar power for emergency use. seems to work well with only 1 100watt panel in a poor location. should be much better after I hook up and relocate my 2 panels.

January 23, 2014

I can't hook it up to my 2001 Monte Carlo ss under the hood because it to big. I put it in my girl truck to see how good it worked and her truck performs better. I'm going to get a smaller one for under the hood and put the HC1800 in the trunk. Great battery would recommend this product.

January 4, 2014

well pros about this. this battery fits my suv's stock spot and is about 5 pounds lighter then the stock one I had for a starter battery. in -15C and with lights on for 8 hours (was by mistake because of my dad using my suv and left them on) it was still on 12V "12.08 and when I turned it on went right back up to 14.2V. overall this battery i use is for my sound system. and from a reading of 11.25 on stock battery now working at 12.8V to 13.9 when playing loud bass music. overall best dollar i payed for. best thing is the music sounds 2x better now its in. cons: had to install it my self lols jk really don't see no problem with this battery at all. had this for about 1 month

This battery cranks my 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 with ease. I had to replace some smaller high performance batteries so I chose the HC1800. I had heard wonderful things about it. I am very pleased. It weighs a ton!!!!

October 21, 2013

The kinetik HC1800. Okay first, I have a 12" rockford fosgate T2, thing is a beast for my lows. It's running off my Hifonics BRX 2400 rms, the sub is rated at 1200 Rms but I'm getting another one so I needed the bigger amp, an I have kenwood 6x9s and 5 1/4s and tweeters installed, and a kenwood headunit, and I'm running about 1600 rms watts, and of course my headlights would dim, so I looked igo replacing the battery, I went with the 1800 because it was the biggest that would fit under the hood of my 2005 honda accord V6, I thought 1800 would be plenty before I got the second sub an I thought it would stop my headlights from dimming.. I was wrong, if anything the stock battery made my headlights dim less... Idk why? Cuz I did the big 3, idk but I wouldn't recommend

October 10, 2013

I bought this batt. because my sound system would drop my voltage down to 11 with my stock battery. I have yet to see less than 12.3v after installing this along side my stock one. It is quite heavy, but that's to be expected. I love the thing and now have great peace of mind regarding my charging system.
