    am i going to need second battery?

    hi guys,
    bit of a newbie-ish wen it comes to ice! curretnly have two pioneer subs 450 rms each unsure model number and this amp http://www.bassjunkies.com/audio/t1-audio-ls2000-2.
    however bit of an impulse buy and i have just brought this package http://caraudiosecurity.com/shop/pro...s_id/5042.html.
    without the 15" wired up, just the two pioneers, lights do a fair bit of dimming. is there any way around this, think the car has had the same original battery since new, 2002 astra sxi, air con.
    thanks

    Could someone answer me this... as I've read loads about it but I'm still none the wiser

    Which is most effective and what are the good/bad points of each?

    - Power Cap
    - Upgrade the big 3
    - Diesel Battery
    [ My Car ]
