IIRC, Optima moved manufacturing to Mexico a while back.

Yeah. I had a blue from just before they made the move and it was a great battery. Oh well, almost every company seems to do that - they build up a name for themselves (Kicker, PPI, Soundstream, et al) and then once they have a good reputation, they start cutting back on quality and trying to live off the good name they built in the past.

yes i recently read that optima is going down hill also. is there another battery that you would recommend? I'm trying to make it so i just need one decent battery under the hood. budget for it would be around 200

Stinger and Kinetic were good the last I heard, but I typically stay away from ultra high power systems that require significant electrical upgrades. I stick with Interstate and Diehard for my systems. You might check one of the forums with a more active SPL crowd to see what they're using.

Interstate are still decent. Northstar are also good.
