    Before i go out and buy one or two new batteries for my ride i was planning on getting some feed-back on other peoples experieces with installing batteries for car-audio purposes.

    So what type, rating and set-up should i get to get the best perfomance without killin the battery?
  • Optima Red Top. :) Bar none. :)

    I've heard Optima are good, but I've also heard that for the most part there are 3 battery manufactures and most are re-badged. For car audio I'd look at getting the best deep cycle ones you can find. You also might check out ones at a marine store like West Marine or Boater's World as they carry some heavy duty super deep cycle batteries used in boats that run all kinds of electronic devices etc.

    Optima batteries are a good option, Napa Sells Orbital which is a deep cycle battery that performs just as well at a fraction of the cost of an Optima red top! the Orbitals go for about 100.00 which is truly affordable for a deep cycle battery. There is also Kinetik which is a serious competitors battery(POWERCELL). there are many types to choose from, this is a more expensive line of battery but then 1 kinetik battery = 100 1.5 Farad capacitors! which makes this a battery and a capacitor in one! these are not really batteries but powercells! hope this helps.
