For dual battery information go here and for the 200 amp Stinger relay, just meter the PURPLE wire to ensure that it's switched. I thought the PURPLE wire on the older Chevy's was the starter wire.

ok thanks but now my jlaudio is hook up to the yellow top optima battery and is still making my headlight s act all my light dim (blink) when i turn my bass up  now i know it should do this i have a alumapro 5 farad hook up only to this amp i wonder if it isn,t working like it should  i guess i could try the 15 farad and i tested my main battery and they said that the cranking amps is about 100 amps lower than it should be now would this make a diff  to my system since i have only the jl audio amp 300/4 hook up to this battery     thanks rob

The JL slash series are some power hungry amps.  A multiple battery setup will do absolutely nothing for your dimming problems if your alternator can't keep them charged.  You need an upgraded alternator- plain and simple.  Also read the sticky above about the "big 3".

I agree with geepherder. A cap and extra battery will do nothing unless your alternator can handle it all.
