I Had a 1999 civic with a 1200 watt class a/b amp..never had a problem with the alternator.
Apparently the models with air conditioning came with a bigger alternator Ive been told.
None the less you should be alright class a/b amps -- posted image.

you could have some problems. i would upgrade the alternator or you could get some pretty serious dimming depending on how you play your music.

Well my music is turning of. And my light dim alot. I put my turn signals and my music leave real quick and come back. So I'm guessing it's a power problem.

Yea in that case you may consider upgrading!
I would get a deep cycle battery as well.

You don't necessarily need a deep cycle battery unless you plan on running the battery down dead from time to time.  That's not something you want to do, deep cycle or not.  But you definitely need to upgrade the big 3 wiring, redo all grounding, and start shopping for a HO alt.
Build the box so that it performs well in the worst case scenario and, in return, it will reward you at all times.
