Default Best AGM battery for AUX applications

Im going to start gathering materials for fixing up my aux electronic system (how my light bar is wired, wiring up radio components, etc.)

What brand of battery do you guys use for your aux applications?

I was leaning towards an AGM (not planning to shove it under the hood)

Edit- AGM Deep Cycle, that is

There's a brand called AGM? I always thought that was just a technology for sealed batteries. I'd say any name brand sealed deep cycle would be good. Just check the date of manufacture to make sure you're not buying an older battery.

Sorry, improperly phrased that.

Yes, I mean an AGM-type battery.
There is no AGM brand I know of.

I have an optima yellowtop that has served me well so far (~3 years). It IS my starting battery as well as what I used for my sound system. I bent my battery tray to fit a larger battery in. I think stock is group 58 and I shoved a group 34 in.

As far as getting a second battery, check out XS Power as they have some pretty small batteries. I've also heard good things about Exide who are in the United States.
