Battery problems

So I recently purchased a 94 with a 99 b18b1 motor. when I came out to start it up the battery was dead, so I jumped it and thought nothing of it until it happened the very next day, so I changed the battery and put new connections on the cables and still the same problem, so I next put a new alternator on, and yet again in only a night I come out and it completely dead any suggestions on what my problem could be,? Please help

Sounds like something is pulling a charge even with the car off

I have no idea what it could be though and no idea on where to start looking.

Did you test the battery to make sure it was dead or did the car just fail to start without a jump

Get the battery tested. It most likely cannot hold a charge anymore.

Totally missed that, just saw the connection part... Lol.

So it sounds like you have a parasitic drain then. I'm assuming you have a DVM or Ammeter? If so use your ammeter (PLEASE IN SERIES NOT PARALLEL), and see how much amperage is being pulled when the cars ignition is off. Pull each fuse individually until you can see the current drop. Check everything on that circuit.

Here is a pretty good video on showing how to locate a parasitic draw.
