    What size battery should I run?

    So im currently running a 15 farad capacitor...i know they serve no purpose from what I've heard but I got it a long time ago when I didn't know much about car audio I just wanted to get loud. Anyways i want to put a second battery in and I wasnt sure that size i would need. I'm runnin a 15" Fi BTL with a T20001bd wired at 1ohm. Yellow top up front.

    Thanx
