If your box is for them to be end to end then I don't think they would fit.

Doh! I guess I should just measure the damn things. I was looking at the vendors spec sheet and my eyes slid up a line and misread the width.

Thanks!

They should fit but remember the 6 volt batteries are taller - about 11" depending on type of post.

What you need are the GC2 quad box, dimensions. Length 22 3/8, width 15 1/2, height 12 7/8, including tops.

Re: ABYC and Batteries

you will be much happier moving many T-105's than one 4D.
Note. The distance batteries can be apart is limited by wire gauge and speed of light.
Wire size is limited by the connections that can be made on the ends.

Any size wire can be attached to a battery up to and including 4/0, as well as the fuses and battery switches they are connected to.
