I'd recommend the optima yellow top. It's a good battery for running lots of accessories.

yellow top is great for car audio, but ive always had trouble with chargers, trickle or regular, and on yellow tops. Kenitk is a car audio battery company they make killer stuff and ive never had an issue. the kenitk discharges slightly faster than a yellow top.

do you plan on a main battery and a cap/audio battery in the rear, or just a single battery?
single battery it might be good to look at a yellow top. a main bat and cap/bat i would go with a red top and a kinetik hc600 or hc800.
not sure if you have 2 or 4ohm speakers running to the 4ch and i believe that amp is 100x4 @2ohm, 50x4 @4ohm. also not sure what ohm you're running the kicker at so dont know what full rms your system is running but im guessing around 1000-1200rms.
if possible, hook up a temp battery just to do a couple tests. start up the car, turn on the lights, and a/c to max. put on a song with a lot of good bass and crank it up as high as you plan on listening to it.
do you get any dimming at high bass parts? with the 180amp alt i dont think you will with the power you're running. if not, you could go with a red or yellow top (red if you want the extra cca, yellow if you plan to run the system a lot with the car shut off, draining and recharging the battery a lot). if you do get dimming, think about a red top and a secondary dedicated to the audio.
