Took a huge dab of Cherry Pie. That got me back to being Jose Mixerr once again.

Please, tell me more about batteries; I had no idea

I mean I just had one of these for no reason.

Amazon.com: Optima Batteries 8014-045 D34/78 YellowTop Dual Purpose Battery: Automotive

I guess having it consistently drain to under 12volts on a regular basis (monitored from cigarette lighter digital voltmeter) was just unique to my system? Then having alternators fry because of the strain and heat was just I dunno, magnets or magic or something


lol



Alright, I think you answered my question. Essentially the system wasn't being fully powered, wasn't being pushed hard for long periods, and the alternator was under continual strain from consistently trying to charge the battery while running the components, and it was never pushed hard enough to fry the alternators. So basically the problem was never discovered and even if it was readily apparent it wasn't perceived or ignored somehow, someway without mechanical or electrical failure of some sort just by sheer luck

Multi-batteries come into play if the amperage isn't there, as a fail-safe. capacitors are junk and will supply little bursts of power and are essentially useless; they might prevent your lights from dimming a little bit now and then but thats it. A second battery will buy you more time before the system fails at some point. More batteries and you're kind of getting extreme and should just supply more amperage (higher output alternator)

I want to add I'm not endorsing optima batteries; they're trash. You have to do stupid shit like flip them upside down every now and then. At least my sister was working at autozone I had to warranty three of them then eventually got a full refund after like a year of wasting them lol

I was selling weed and driving A LOT; also living between federal way / seattle / gold bar; so several hours of driving around all over the place. And I never really cared about where I would try to beat. I only had a couple 8's in this custom plexi'd truck enclosure i kept under the backseat in this tight space but that shit was very clean, impactful, clear and nice. People would be like "damn these are 8's? wtf? these hit harder than my two 12's" and just didn't understand it

Damn car audio rules someone give me $100k

Do I look like an electrical engineer?

they might prevent your lights from dimming

which is important when driving in the night.
