Battery upgrade - Duralast vs Die hard vs Interstate

Hello

Can you guys let me know which aftermarket battery fits our car . Since I upgraded the stereo , I would like to make sure the battery is good. I came across 2 brands

1. Sears - Die hard platinum - what model fits our g8 ? Are these same as Odysseys ?


2. Duralast platinum -

3. Interstate -Megatron plus-

Any advice would be appreciated.


Thanks


Patrick

Any reason you don't want to run an optima? I've had great success with mine, but then again I don't have any major audio upgrades. Have been running an optima in my trans am for 6 years and still puts in work lol. They are pricey as well. I have duralast gold in everything else and for the money you can't beat the warranty.

Is the battery not starting the car? I have the factory battery still in my car and two 900 watt RMS amps. 0 issues so far. Why spend money on a new battery if you don't need it? Any 94R battery should do the job.
