These batteries are usually only used for audio applications since they discharge and recover very quickly. They go for 334$ a piece

I only deploy against people who post their pics sideways.

Plus my shoulder has been giving me trouble lately. Arthritis acting up.

Lol yeah I'm sponsored by Full River Battery that's who makes the batteries I'm running so i got a hell of a deal but still nothing is free lol.

The batteries will all go in the back behind the enclosure with a row of 7 then another row of 7 on top then the last free in front of those to display the full battery. It's hard to imagine. That's 1309 pounds just in batteries. Then I will have all of my amps which will be another 250 pounds then my subs which will be another 600 pounds lol yeah this will be heavy lol
