Question Optima battery?

So, I am currently running 2 12" L7's a 3000W amp and a Control audio Epicenter. What optima battery would you all recommend? This is for a daily driver 2010 Camaro V6 and 65-70% of the time I have my music bumping hard. Last night I had some issues with my car so I believe it's time for a new battery.

I would suggest a new stock battery, and then a group 31 battery on top of what you already have. Deka G31's are what I used when I had an 18" RE XXX in my trailblazer on 3kw

Government cannot create a world without risks, nor would we really wish to live in such a fictional place. Only a totalitarian society would even claim absolute safety as a worthy ideal, because it would require total state control over its citizens’ lives. Liberty has meaning only if we still believe in it when terrible things happen and a false government security blanket beckons.” - Ron Paul

I would try to avoid Optima. The newer ones (2007+) have a pretty high failure rate.

Odyssey batteries are far better than Optima. I had an optima fail catastrophically and it cost me my whole vehicle. Thank goodness for insurance.
Thanks to MRR, I have some SWEET wheels! Thank you!
