L36 Battery Options
I'm upgrading my stereo equipment in the near future. My lights are already dimming with the minimal system I have. I've read that the dimming lights is basically telling you that your alternator can not handle the load, thus I'm buying a DP 160 alt hopefully. I would like to get a new, nice battery when I put the alternator and the new subwoofer amplifier I have in the car. Fine and Dandy.
Can someone please recommend a battery for use with a heavily loaded system, and to handle the Michigan winters? I don't understand the CA and CCA ratings. I've heard good things about Optima batteries, and I see them all over everyone'* signatures.
Alternator, sub amplifier and battery all at the same time is bascially what I'm doing.
Just need a good battery for the load and Michigan winters.
Also, has anyone ever upgraded the chassis ground from the chassis to the negative battery post? I've heard that is a good idea also.
Thnaks you guys.
