Consider a 30 amp reducer/converter to handle the load and any future added load

I am pretty sure that was a 16v to 12v voltage reducer, which are not good for the batteries.

The 48v to 12v converters can provide 12v output from a wide input range (26v to 60v), there is no way the cart would even ran if the pack voltage got that low.

Talking Re: Battery box 12v battery

The reducer I had, the input was rated at 30-60VDC with a 12VDC 25 amp output. Don't know the brand name but I was assured by the club car dealer that it was more than enough for lights and simple 4 speaker auto stereo. It did fine until the batteries were down 1 bar on my dc fuel gauge. I had to press the accelerator like I was pushing on an egg until the fuel gauge was down 2 more bars. After that, anything other than cruising would shut off the stereo. The batteries wasn't fresh but they lasted another two years before I had to replaced them. The reducer also got pretty hot tucked away under the dash with very little air flow. That concerned me but, never caused any problems.

If I recall right, that reducer cost me around $200.00. I did not want to take another gamble on an alternate reducer. Never heard anyone have a problem with marine deep cycle aux battery so I went that route. Lost half a bag well and have to plug in a extra cord but have been very satisfied ever since.

You guys that are having radio going off problems need to look into putting a diode in line on your radio power wire. Then a cap from the pos to neg on the radio side of the power wires to the radio. This will help keep noise out of the radio as well as keeping the radio from going off when you draw large loads from your voltage reducer.

Sergio can explain this a lot better than I can.
