Default Honda Civic 2005 car battery question!?

I don't know much about cars but I need a new car battery for my Honda Civic 2005 standard for this winter. What would be the best and most power I can get in a battery for my Civic? I would like more power (or ampage???) because of my sound system that has just been put in.

What you want is something with a higher cold cranking amperage. Make sure you get CCA cold cranking amps. The higher the better. Look for something around 600. I would not go any lower than 450 CCA

You can check at your local auto parts stores to see which battery it takes. batteries are rated in cold cranking amps. An 05 should have at least a 650cca, but going any more than this can cause problems. If you are worried about your power consumption, you should put a higher amp alternator in to accommodate the higher amp draw from the stereo. This takes the strain off the other parts of the charging system and your battery will not be stressed as much while the car is running and a higher "cca" battery will last longer with the car shut off and any accessory on.
