Lights under your car is super ricey. Lights in your car that change colors and flicker to the bass, now that can be pretty cool.


Yes I edit my posts a lot, auto correct likes to sabotage me!

I completely forget which yellow top I ordered from Summit way back in the day but they do make one that will fit in the stock location. You will have to buy a universal hold down from your local box store but it'll work. I do know it was a 610 CCA version. I can look when I'm not dead tired from waking up at 4AM...

Here you go

Optima® 8042 218 Yellowtop® Deep Cycle Starting AGM Battery D75 25 | eBay

Apparently they now make one that is a direct fit with the stock hold down. D75/25. You can also get it from Summit if you'd rather get it from them.

However, I will say from experience that you might want to get a separate battery for the system. Mount it in the trunk and run some capacitors if you are going to do it right. Leave a normal battery in the engine bay for everything else.

edit: Verify this is correct though. This is the one I've found on multiple forums that they all say fits but I have not personally run one myself. The one I ran was taller and did not have the lip for the factory hold down. It still fit under the stock hood tho.

Capacitors are actually bad for higher power systems. They can also meltdown and cause very bad things to happen.

Yellow top batteries are definitely the go to battery when it comes to high power systems, a lot of people will run just one for their whole vehicle. It's safe to put one in the back and will make it a lot easier on the batteries themselves. I would put a batt in the back.. But have heard way too many horror stories on caps (especially on the audio forums I belong to)
