you probally wont need a second battery for that, but you will need a power convertor for the ps2. and depending on size of the convertor. is where you would need to think about a 2nd battery.

if you do think about getting one you can get one of these they are small and i know mine is going to be hidden where the jack was in the back of the cab. mind you i have an extended cab.

No additional battery is needed. There really is not that much more drian on your electrical system than a standard stereo system. Obviously there will be a little more drain, but if that is all you are adding, then you should be good to go. I would advise on a higher quality DC/AC converter though as some of the cheaper ones, can distort your sound.

my friend put in a new battery and such when he did that, but than again he put everything else on that battery as well such as neons. I think all depends if you plan on doing anything else in your interior that needs power

wich ps2 do you have and where are you putting it. ive been looking into putting mine in the truck but all i have is the new one that opens on top, kinda makes it hard to put it in a tight space. i may do this but will probably get the old ps2 before i do it.
