Well played Tim. I was wondering why it took you so long to delete that post.

Re: Best WK battery?

Online today about 4 hrs. scouring info about different batteries. Websites, forums, etc. Since I'm upgrading my audio system, have 1 Focal 600w powering my JL subwoofer, going to get another 400w amp and focal speakers. Looked at Optima, Odyssey/stinger, Kimetik, Powermaster and Batcap. I read where too many people have had bad luck with Optima's, the brand I was thinking of getting (yellowtop). Some of these others are pretty pricey, but I look more to performance over cost. It's pretty hard to make a decision with all these others, but I think I'll go with the Kimetik 1800 or 2000. My deciding decision was good reviews and basically cause they're blue in color and I like that.

Re: Best WK battery?

Good for you dan...I am totally envious of your ride and if I was your valet I would steal it Please post an update on battery performance.

I am disappointed that the Optima's are getting bad reviews; like I said earlier I had a yellow top in my Dakota that was pushing 1600+ watts, cb, radar, loudspeaker and in-dash monitor for over 4 years. I guess I too will need to do research should the time come...

Good thing I can't afford a valet, LOL! I'm going a different route with my plans. Keeping the stock battery, but adding a Kinetik HC600 near the amps in the back. Went to a different car audio store and decided to go with JL HD600 amp and JL C5 speakers for doors and dash. I'll post this in the right section when system complete.
