Default Lesexy wont start

I had it sitting playing music while working on a different car and i was starting it periodically to make sure the battery didnt die, and after an hour or two my subs werent hitting right and the battery was low so i tried to start it and now it wont turn over.. I hooked our small battery charger up to it on 30-50amps and it still wont turn over, heres a video of trying to start it while the charger is on it.

Would using jumper cables work better you think? idk this has never happened to my car before.. my brother is off somewhere with the jumper cables so i dont have any right now.

What about your alternator? Does your fuel pump prime okay when you turn the key?

in your video it look like the voltage gauge was reading about 9 volts thats at the lower limits to get it to crank , let it charge for a few . Looks like the same interior as my lecrewcar.

as far as it going dead most people dont realize how long it takes to charge your battery back up after a restart, at idle it would likely take an hour or more. so you were running it down with the stereo, and running it down alot more each time you start it. if you want to run the radio with out the engine you really need a separate deep cycle type battery, second to that would be use it for a while and only try to start it before you are going to go somewhere because you may only have one start left in it.
