How well would 887 CCA hold up to my car? Its got aftermarket speakers, subs, a 3 or 400 watt amp (will be getting more and louder amps eventually), aftermarket cd deck, a small neon, and very soon Ill have LED brake lights. would 887 be pretty good? How about 650 instead?

Sears has the SUV edition (887 CCA) for $105.93 with core charge, discount, and tax.
Walmart has a battery for $65 but it only has 650 CCA and one for $73 and has 790 CCA.

Get the 887, you will be glad you did. Idk how much amperage your car takes, but get the biggest you can afford, and you will not go wrong

Yep. It will help the lights. That's one thing about my car ATM - needs a stronger batt. I have a smaller cap and everything, but at a red light with the blinker on and the subs pushing some SPL, i get nearly 2v drops in the volt meter. I think the one in my Grand Marquis was 1000.

In any of my other cars i dont think Ive ever had any problem with my headlights dimming or anything like that, never noticed the Volt meter dropping either.

I've always had that problem in every car I owned. I think it's the American Bass amp, being 1000w, plus the 200w four channel amp and blinker just pisses the whole system off lol. I have a 100a inline fuse for the amp, the 75 was getting very warm.

Mines only a 60a and even tho thats good for what im runnin now it wont be for my next plan. After I buy new kicker speakers for the front doors I plan on pushin those and my rear deck with a 4 channel 440 watt amp. My rear deck speakers can handle 300 each and the front ones will be able to handle 135 each so 110 per speaker sounds like a good choice to me.

Kickin' stereo or not, I always say get the highest CCA battery that will fit your car and budget.
