I can say I have ran a Powermax pm4-100lk on 4 stage mode hooked to a Neptune nt12-200 200AH gel deep cycle battery and the setup runs great. The most I hit it with was a 12 pill but it held it great. I have nothing but good things to say about the Powermax stuff. I also hear great things about megawatt.
I have a powermax 100 amp and want to know what voltage I should set it for and should I buy a big battery to run with it or can I use it by itself directly with the radio. The radio is a RCI2970N3 which is 300+ watts so I guess about the same as a 4 pill amp.

Your 100A is plenty. I run my stuff right around 14.4 to 14.5v
