If u need power...this is it

Was looking to do a budget system and needed a budget battery...well this one does the trick very very well. I would like to add a second one solely for the system at a later date and will definitely purchase another. Great product and very good quality, takes a beating and performs wonderfully.

Great price

I have this HC1200 as a second battery for my system and it is great. I use a power terminal with a voltage read out on it and this battery keeps my voltage right at 14.4v. I did read the measurements but was still surprised with how small and powerful this battery is(about 1/2 the size of a normal battery). I could have probably went with a smaller battery but this one fit in my tray perfect. It does come with both terminals and bolts with lock washers.

Highly recommend this product to audio enthusiasts who want to get the most from their aftermarket high wattage audio equipment. Don't cut corners. Fork out the cash for a H/O alternator and do a big three upgrade if you want proper sound and protection for your investment! Night and day difference with this battery!

good battery

Purchased for my 2010 altima 2.5 SL. A Little short for the battery brackets but no biggie. System hits harder for sure, but my lights still dim, but I did do a big 3 wire upgrade and sometimes the big 3 causes worse dimming so idk. I am running 2 x 12" kicker L5s with a JL Audio 500/1 slash v2.

do not buy as a replacemtent car battery.

I have had this battery for a few weeks now. I bought it because my lights were dimming and needed an extra power battery. This seemed to be like a deep cycle battery. Well the power of this battery is good. it just doesnt have a cold cranking amps rating on it and i live in minnesota and it wont start my car in the winter. If I get it started and run my car for awhile it stays warm and will start. But if I leave it over night, no bueno. I have the battery sitting in my house to warm up so I can put it back in my car to start it.

good buy

Using it as the main battery in my truck and powering a 1500 rms amp on top. Voltage is far more stable then the stock AC delco battery, no more headlight dim as well. The HC1200 was the biggest kinetic I could fit under the hood, does the job well.

good battery small price

This battery is great for an amp that produces 1200 watts. I'm currently using it to power a ppi 1800.1 black ice that currently has a sundown audio X-12 wired to two ohms on it. I have the battery under the hood of my 2008 ford escape and my volt meter used to drop down to 12.3 while my car was running and now it wont drop below 13.6. The only problem with this battery is that on cold winter mornings in upstate new york the battery struggles a little with the cold but it has always started my car.

So far so good

I bought two of these Kinetic HC1200 batteries. One replaced my starting battery on my '06 Civic, which anyone who knows - the stock battery is a joke for Minnesota winter. The other is in my trunk. No more headlight dimming. Although I still could use a bigger alternator at times when I really crank it. I'm running 900 watts and two 12's in the trunk. These batteries are kind of expensive but in comparison to what you're getting and compared to a brand like Optima, they are a bargain.

Strong Battery! A Must Have for Your Audio System!!

Purchased this battery to run 3 Rockford Fosgate PBR motorcycle amps in my Campagna T-Rex.Amps are (2) 300X2 and (1) 300X1 amp. This battery powers my audio system for a few hours and provides enough power to thump my 10 inch sub, (4) 1 inch tweets and (4) 6.5 Fosgate speakers. Keep in mind the T-rex only has a 35 amp charging system so I have to charge my battery every night via a CTEK charger. I highly Recommend Kinetik batteries!!!!!

my review of my kinetic hc1200 battery

When I first bought it a few months ago I was very impressed with it in my pathfinder,it performed flawlessly without a problem,now that i have a new car a 2012 scion xB it is still performing very well. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a second battery to power their system that has moderate power, very good battery from a very reliable seller. Thanks guys.
