Load Boss is Alterstart. While mine lasted, the alternator was pretty nice. Decent performance and cheap enough...
Call Phil at H-O-Alternators.com Significantly more expensive, but after seeing the build quality, I can completely understand why.

After I posted I went back on to ebay and saw that. The other company I was referring to is Eagle Auto Electric...which sound like a bunch of clowns, check this out, I send them a message saying that I am on the fence about whose alternator to get, their's or Alterstarts, I tell him what Alterstart had to say and then ask him to sell me on theirs, to give me some examples as to why I should choose their alternators. His reply was basically, I don't think they can do 110 amps at idle but do what you want, get theirs and see.  LOL  Now what kind of sales pitch is THAT???? I'm asking the guy to sell me...and what does he do..tell me to buy the other guys, that is the poorest salesman on the face of the earth!

I used to use a Kinetik HC 1400, and I was going to go with an 1800 in the trunk till I decided to shell out some money for some Odyssey batteries. I don't have any experience with the Optimas, however, the Kinetiks are better as reserve batteries. If you're going to play your audio system while the vehicle is off, the Kinetik will be more suitable. The Odyssey (same as Stinger and Hawker, just different names) are much better for being used in daily driving conditions. I have an Odyssey PC1200 and it slightly outperforms my HC 1400. I have check voltage drop and compared the two and the Odyssey was the winner. Once I decide on my substage, I will be putting in the Odyssey PC2150 in the trunk. This beast is known to be much better of a battery than a Kinetik HC 2400. Another battery to consider besides the ones I mentioned is Northstar. The NSB's are great batteries as well.

For SPL use I would also, but for daily, I wouldn't per the recommendations I made in my previous post.

well im tryin to make my car an SPL car and im tryin to figure out if i should run a kinetik 2400 or a optima, idk im gettin opinions straight donw the middle. which would be better if its running as my secondary and not my primary. my alternator is 170 amps i think and theres no way to do anything to it cause my car is so new. basically i just want to know what is the best choice is all. ill be running 2 3000 rms amps. right now im running 1 off my stock electrical system and i have almost no dimmin at all.
