dont use a 2nd battery unless you have a HO Alternator, it will just put more strain on your stock alt. and battery. check your ground wiring again and look at these:http://www.wickedcases.com/caraudio/capacitors.html

HO - High output.
To get use out of a 2nd battery your alt has to be able to charge it. If your amp(s) is/are large enough to stress your alternator adding a 2nd battery will only make it worse.
