You need a good old fashioned capacitor. No battery will be able to supply all of the power your system needs exactly when it needs it.

Sometimes you just can't be chang and you gotta spend the cash. Or you could just let your lights flicker...that's free.

You need a capacitor. Size depending on how much power your throwing around. Also might want to look into a deep cycle battery like the Optima Yellow top (around $160). Hope that helps.

A deep cycle battery is basically a battery that you can run to its very last piece of juice and it'll still recharge to full capacity...over and over and over again. A "normal" battery would not be able to recharge back to full capacity after being run down a few times. These types of batteries are used in boats because of their reliability. Feel enlightened?
