You can use dual purpose but I prefer specific batteries myself. Just picked up 4 Optima blue tops myself for the new stereo (can't beat it at $70 new each...got the hookup)

A new boat owner friend of mine I met on the lake...well his childhood friend is a manager of a major battery warehouse chain.

JMV - I think you did just fine. The key on batteries is to make sure they are deep cycle RV/marine (i.e. posts). And the second key is to make sure you match like kind on the same circuit. So if you add another... match it. 105A will give you some nice reserve.
