Default Car Battery Question

I put in a system,

JL - W6
Pioneer - DVD6500
JL - 500/1 Amp
JL - 500/5 Amp
Boston Acoustics Speakers (all around)

dont ask why its 500/5 it just is.

back to the point, my battery has died at least 5 times already, i carry around jumpers but its very annoying to flag someone down...

when i leave my car in idle and listen to music loud it dies, if i turn off my car and listen to music for 4 minutes while i fill up gas it dies its gotta be the battery right?

im looking to get a new battery one that supports the system better any suggestions, links, prices, reviews?

Stock battery sucks. Mine dies not because of a 1200w amp (which is sitting in my room because the car wouldn't be able to handle it) but simply because it's TOO COLD. Just go get an optima and be done with it.

Your "deep cycling" the battery by using it hard when the motor isn't providing additional power, so you need a YELLOW top unless you change your ways.

Also, get a capacator, you can find a 1 farad for $40, and they'll help stabalize the voltage in your car, which is a good thing.
