Exactly what amps do you have and what speakers????
If the amps are truly 2000 watt rms, I doubt your great deal speakers are going handle the power.

I was running 4 oddssey pc625s on my eliminator with a 14speaker 2000 plus watt system .They worked flawlessly plus two of them were lighter & smaller than 1 deep cycle battery. Actually am going to do the same to my fountain since I had such good luck .

I've also heard golf cart batteries are the way to go.

Along with the problems of loss of warranty and or loss of insurance coverage.

These are pwc batteries, how long did they last? Also since these would be paralleled could you use a 4 bank charger? Curious if this is efficient enough I may consider the same.
