Adding a second battery...maybe?

Hey all, recently ive been having a problem with my amp and sub in my truck. I installed them a few months ago and everything has been working fine, but lately its been acting weird. When i turn on my radio everything works and the amp is on and the sub is kicking, but at random times like in the middle of songs the sub will just stop, and then maybe start back up i missing something really simple? the only thing i can think of is maybe the amp isnt getting enough air flow or something because its behind my back bench seat. Could it have anything to do with a battery? ive been thinking about adding a second one but i dont know how to do that, any help is appreciated thanks!

definately make sure the ohms are matching up. and make sure your rms on the amp matches or is relatively close to the rms on the sub. its possible that your sub is trying to draw too much power from the amp if it cant put out enough, thus making it go into protect mode. Alos, be sure that all wires are connected securely as a loose power wire can do the same thing lol. What model subwoofer and amp do you have exactly?
