Yeah, I meant to add that to my original suggestion. You still wanna get a battery, but you can save a few bucks. I got a great 800 or 1000 CCA battery from AutoZone for 80 bucks. The one that was in my car when I bought it was only 600. Not good...

dont waste the money on the red top, just buy a battery that has a good warranty/cost ratio. you may want to go the easiest route with a 1 farad(depending on the output of your amp) capacitor. it'll significantly reduce flashing/dimming. just my $.02

A capacitor doesn't do anything, it'* just a bandaid. It just stores electricity between the amplifer and battery, the charging system is still hit, but it'* longer and drawn out.

i dont mean to give you any heat, but draining a lead acid battery to that level is a great way to kill it and keep it from retianing a full charge in the future. This is what my dad (an EE ) ALWAYS tells me when ever i drain the battery from working on the car or using my gaint flashlight that has a lead-acid batt. Pulling a fuse or two is a good preventative measure
