    Default Anyone know where to buy one of these?

    Anyone have an idea on where you can get one of these batteries. I had my stereo guy put it in, but I don't think he's in business anymore. Its a Discover ev8dg-a. I looked on the internet, but didn't find any sites which sell them in Socal.

    I'm up for a different replacement option. It's a big battery, anyone in San Diego know of any good places to buy large batteries like this? I'm not as strong as I used to be, but his sucker must way 250lbs. Its just for my stereo and to run the house when the big one hits...lol

    Maybe Interstate Batteries. Looks like it might be a bus battery.

    I have 12 of them on our fishing boat, we buy from a marine electric shop here in town. They are pricy but with a good charger and maintanence on the water level they are tough.

    250lbs? Wow! I'd look for an alternative deep cycle battery and/or install dual batteries.

    I do have dual batteries, but that one is for my stereo. I can crank it all weekend and never have to worry about a dead battery. It's for the family cruiser so I'm not too worried about weight.

    Signs work good!

    I'd probably go for several smaller ones....if for no other reason that it's easier to move.
    Years ago...like early 90's, i used to run 4 deep cycle at my house and it was for my stereo... batteries stashed in a shed out back with 2 big amp chargers and a couple welding leads run into the house to the amps. Car amps..high watt car amps with fans....It's how you get a home high power home system on a budget. At one time it was good for over 3000 watts (i know...not much by today's standards but speakers were always the issue...kinda like top fuel with t/a radials
    Ran several pairs of home speakers....no subs but i had base speakers amped separate....it would run for several days @ half power....
    Separate/smaller batteries might be better....easier to control heat at high charge/discharge rates....way easier to move....and if one battery craps a cell one smaller battery cheaper than that monster.
