Yellow top dead?

got a 96 mustang big 3
v900xd amp 2 kicker l5
awesome DD

lately I notice i can sit in my car with just the a-b amp and watch my gauge drop from 14 to 12.5 -13v volts(battery out of juice?)

all grounds are clean

been told it could be an internal short(it been depleted a few times as low as 9v)

had it on a charger at 90% the battery would hiss or make a sparking crackling noise!

bad alt? or dead/short battery?
thanks!

For starters find some one or some where that can do a load test on your battery.
