Again, thank you for your help.
My present battery
is a stock 24 series battery
. I am sure it is just a cranking battery not a deep cycle. I do have room to replace the plastic battery box
and install a larger battery. I will not be operating the stereo system with the engine
off. Much of the time the engine
will be operating at idle or slightly above idle, no wake speed, essentially. I have looked at both speakers you mentioned and there is ample room for either of them. If I were to use just a head
unit, which brand/model would you suggest for the most power and best sound?
I would suppose if I were to double the battery capacity by installing 2 larger batteries, using a battery switch like a perko, it would extend my time factor. I would think that any charge I got from the alt., however minimal, would be a benefit.
From what you have told me about the speakers you suggest, 8 ohm, it really compounds the lack of power produced by a stand alone head
