Too much strain on the battery?

Im not sure if im putting too much strain on my battery. nothing has happened, im just worried if i add more stuff. the only major things i have done are sub/amp, and LED lights.
I just want to know if im putting too much strain or if i add more lights or something if it will harm the battery..

No worries, your battery can put out more than enough amperes to take care of all of that plus more. Your alternator is what has to keep up with the drain since the total amperage draw of everything must be less than the alternator can put out or the battery will slowly drain over time.... which is far more rare than most people here would guess. Based on the things you've added, unless your amplifier is actually a bunch of Godzilla mega-watt amps used for contesting, your electrical system should be fine.

When you have a choice, buy American.
