Generally speaking, the bigger the better. The electrical components of your system will only use what they require and the excess will remain for a back up. I always get the biggest battery that will fit in my battery box.
Positive: 100 %

I grab whatever works haha, but typicaly a bigger battery isn't going to do you any good when it comes to leaving stuff on cause any battery will die over night with lights on or some thing. I just grab whatever I feel like, ive never had a issue with a battery other than junk battery's that went bad. but im sure some one with a battery degree will beg to differ that batterys must be what manufacture says haha.

You can buy the biggest battery made...but it will go dead too because you wired the sound system to work even with the key out of the ignition! Just WTF do you think the factory put an Acc position on the ignition switch for?!!
