Default Re: Too many speakers= bad btteries

For a $30 in-dash radio/cd player with 7w per channel output, I think you should have no more than 4 speakers. Depending on your level of acceptance, this is not a high quality head unit and the sound may or may not be to your liking. If your speaker ratings (check the back of one) are more than 40w, there is probably not enough power to drive them and you will need to change either the head unit or the speakers.
What is the purpose for 5 speakers? You may be able to disconnect 1 of the speakers and wire it correctly and be OK for you.

Speakers don't kill the batteries, the stereo turned on does. It won't matter how many speakers you disconnect, the drain is the same. Put an on/off switch in line with the head unit to keep from draining the battery.

8.4 is good .
So the batteries should have liquid a 1/4 - 1/2 inch above the plate.
Never fill completely up to the fill hole (because all deep Cycle Batteries will
boil some during charge, if too full the Batrtery acid will come out around the Caps)
Never fill with tap water, Use Distilled water !

So rasta78 whats the status ?

well, my batteries are out right now ,but i am thinking that my cheap cd player is the reason.its a 7wattx4 channel and I have 5 -6x9 speakers pulling alot of power.But the problem is, even when I am not having the power on,they still smell hot,does that matter if the power is on for the stereo? if not,thats probably the problem.

Your 5-6X9 speakers are NOT causing your problem. They do not "pull" anything. Your elcheapo head units memory feature will not pull enough to cause problems if your batteries are good and you charge properly. Are you going to have the batteries properly load tested or not?
