Unhappy battery problems

hello M.E. I had an optima battery which died low voltage and wouldnt hold the charge so i replaced it with a Duralast gold battery which i accidentally put the cables backwards (pos and neg) and it gave off sparks for a few seconds well then i put it right way and the next day the battery died then i replaced it agian... 5 hours later the new battery died so thats 2 batteries that have been completely drained! my friend says that it could be the alternator i think a cable might me draining it. when it died the first time it clicked a little but then just made no sound at all, a fuse broke fixed it and now my speakers won't work anymore.
