What batterys are people using??

its time for me to upgrade my battery as i have the stock acdelco piece of junk still in my 2005 pontiac g6 and i dim at 500 wrms i did the big 3 with 0 gauge, and it helped a little but not positive i checked under the hood yesterday to check what battery i have, and one of the wires slipped out off the eyehole connector, and its -40 and im sick so dont plan on fixing that quite yet. but what battery(ies) are people using up front, and or in the back. i still dont know if i need to get a new one up front then one in the back as i plan on getting a hifonics bxi 1208 or 1608 so about 1100watts wrms give or take. what are peoples thoughts and input thanks, oh btw i live in winnipeg if that gives u a better choice for a battery as its always stupid cold

Easiest thing is go to costco and get a yellow top for the front. They say to not use them to start your car but they work fine.

I have an Interstate Megatron. Replaced my 6 year old Hyundai OEM battery last October. Consumer reports rated the Megatron as one of their top picks. It is expensive, but if it lasts as long as the OEM battery, I'll be happy.

Costco sells Yellow Top for about $200 Canadian... If they have any in stock.

Lordco sells them normally for around $300. But they are going on Sale in April for around $130. I'm buying 2 new ones and selling the old ones. Just to freshen them and have one in the trunk for the PS2/xbox/pc/etc.

thanks so far guys, uhm im thinking of a yellow top but still unsure if i should just use 1 new bat for the front and everything will be fine, i guess its all trial and error just with car payments and other garbage and being 17 only get so much money actually to myself so i wanna get the most without paying alot of money

I know I am still a noob to this but I got one of those Exide Orbital batteries from parts source. I heard they are as good as the Yellow Top but cheaper and have a 3 year warranty vs the Opmita's 1.
