    New Battery??

    Car got serviced last month and garage said that the battery was indicating as low when they checked it and advised to look at a possible replacement soon as I may have some issues with it if the weather starts to get colder.

    I am looking at putting some audio into the car next year, just some decent speakers, 10" sub and amp - nothing overboard.

    My question is if I am on the hunt for a new battery is it worth looking at a battery that is it worth looking at buying a battery that will be able to help power my audio like the Optima Red Top Battery or should I just stick to a standard battery?

    Any advice? Words of Wisdom?
    Crazy little Scottish lass!

    You'd have to extend the wires if you decide to use an Optima battery. Best beat would be to go for a diesel battery.

    i just went for the biggest battery that would posibly fit in there and it is huge just go and measure how big you can get in the tray and still close the bonnet and tell them what side the terminals are on

    also as i note for audio its the optima yellow top you want the red is still a cranking battery not deep cycle
