the optima battery is a dry cell and the yellow top is designed to run extra components like amps, wench's , etc. for your gain what i was telling you to look for would be right on the gain and would look like 2.V   but if you didn't see that you should just turn your gain down a little if it's all the way up you know that it should not be all the way up the way your gain should be set with that low of preamp output should be high but not all the way so turn the gain down some and turn down the bass on your H/U  can you post a pic of the gains on your amp ?

i think the yellow top and new battery termenals will give you a good improvement for your power problem  your lights will still dimm just not as much and for  the gain trun it down just a little bit because your preamp output is low when you get everthing done let me know the results

ok i will try to get one of those yellow tops.  i'd like to get it off the net, which would be cheaper, but that means i'd have to use my parents credit card and they would find out that i'd spent more money haha.  maybe that wont work.  I won't even get those replacement subs in until mid next week sometime, but i'll let you know how everything goes.

you want to get the yellow top optima for cheep and you don't want to buy online look in the phone book for an auto parts store that is an auto value  store  you should be able to get the yellow top for about $100 puls tax

alright im back.  i bought the yellow top and am still waiting for the replacement subs to get in...im at college now so i dont know when i'll be able to get back down to my hometown and get that stuff put in.  but anyway, i was talkin to a guy that works for crossfire and he suggested me getting a sealed box as opposed to the ported one i have.  said that would help my subs stop blowin.  well i know a sealed box can help the subs handle more power, so i talked to my local shop and the guy there said that a sealed box with those subs would sound like sh!t so i dont know what to do.  i think its worth the price of the box if my subs will stop blowin, but i dont want it to sound crappy either.  anybody have any experience with BMF's in a sealed box, or any other suggestions?
