Default whats biggest battery i can run in my civic? or should i relocate battery?

well my current battery is probably preaty old.... and my system voltage sucks.....
and right now i cannt afford a highpower alternator!


not sure if i should just squize in the biggest battery i can under the hood OR if i should relocate my battery to the rear that way i can run a fullsize battery...

just not sure what i should do... but i do know for 1200watts my system shouldnt be dipping into 10volt range!

WOW... well after seeing another guys civic cramped with what looked like a fullsize redtop i decided to yank mine out and try.....

and wouldnt ya know it....... it fits.. well finda... had to trim alittle bit of extra plastic away on both sides. one for AC hoses on firewall and the other for the upper control arm bolt..

THO IT IS IN THIER PREATY TIGHT... AND NO TIE DOWN IS NEEDED CAUSE ITS DEFINATLY NOT GONNA GO ANYWHERE!
ONLY DOWNFALL IS NOW MY WIRES ARE ALL SCREWY LOOKEN
darn posts where switched on this battery so now i gotta chop down some positive wires or reroute them...
and well now my voltage is decent with full volume bass
and battery is still alittle low. i had it in my truck which has been siting for the last 2months so the battery was almost dead didnt have enough power to start my truck but pleanty to start the civic... threw it on the charger for alittle while and then went out to air my tire up. i got one going low.

i fit a big yellow top in my stock battery spot, i just had to cut a bit of the plastic at the bottom to make it fit, and you have to wiggle it in and out, its really in there good once you get it in tho,and of course the stock holders dont work, so i use 1 giant zip-tie just incase, but you really dont have to, its not going anywere
