    Red Top Or Yellow Top Optima?

    Alright, I'm running air ride and a crappy 1600watt amp in my car... I've noticed they're both sucking up some major juice... The past week I've had to get jumped off 3 times... My Grandpa has a yellow top and a red top Optima, and he says he'll sell one of them to me... Which one is going to better fit my needs here?

    In that case get the yellow top...I think they are a little stronger...I know they can take discharges better...

    Red tops are starter batteries, with lots of CCA, while the yellow tops are deep cycle, ment to up after long periods without being charged. I'd say yellow if it were me....
