Hey guys. I am currently running a pair of Interstate SRM-24 (690MCA) batteries in my 2003 SAN. I have an extra pair of 24M-XHD(1000MCA) batteries that I would like to run in parallel with the original two. My stereo system consists of a Alpine PDX 1.1000, and two PDX 4.150's.

A few questions.....

1) Is it okay to run these two different batteries together in parallel. In other words, will the different batteries all charge up to 100% even though their capacities are different?

2) What detrimental effects will I impose on my stock alternator? I researched and think that the stock alternator was only 70A (could be 95A, but doubtful).

I'm not looking to be able to blast my music for hours on end, just to give me a longer listening time at lower volumes and not worry as much about starting the boat.

I've never been stranded from playing my music too long, I just finally got around to uncovering some stuff and found these batteries that I had intended to use a long time ago. The timing worked out because I'm doing some troubleshooting with my batteries right now (they're draining fast), but I think that is an issue with my power relay system that I installed last summer. Correct Craft thought that it was smart to run ALL the power for ALL things electrical through the stupid toggle switch next to the driver over a wire that is only slightly larger than 18GA.

Thanks for the help and Cheers!
