Default installing a 2nd battery?

How do i install a 2nd battery?? I know i just need to ground out the - terminal to the frame. But how do i hook up the positive. Do i just run a Wire to the stock batteries + terminal to the 2nd batteries + terminal or do i run a wire from the alternator to the 2nd battery?

Sorry....... i have never done this before.

I would use identical batts to help avoid ohm matching issues.

The batteries have an internal resistance that will eventually drain eachother when the vehicle is off. By the way. If the front battery is not being used for the system, you can run the + to the alternator. I did and it works just fine.

exactly, if you dont have a battery isolator you will have to isolate it yourself.

Put a fuse before the rear battery... You don't really need one after it unless your amps don't have fuses. For the ground you can either run cable to the front if you need every little point of a volt. heh. or you can just pick a nice spot.

it is ok to just run the second battery + to the alternator instead of the front battery + ??
do you have a diagram for this kinda connection or a link to one or maybe could u explain the way u have the connections??

thanks

http://www.kinetikaudio.com/manuals/khccells.pdf page 8 front fuse and rear fuse should be within 18" of their respective battery and add a fuse for your amp/amps in case your amps dont have built in fuses

so is it not a good idea to run the positive from the back battery to the alternator instead of to the front battery??
