a 140+ alternator, 2farad cap, and a yellow top battery. man your system is gonna be soo nice and never struggle for power (but then again we can always find a way for it too). you're going to have some nice bass. they sell the high power alternators on jcwhitney.com and probably your local advanced auto or pep boys depending on which one and how big it is. but def. at jcwhitney

If you have plans for a bigger system, get a bigger hammer. In the form of the largest alternator that you can.

What can be done is get the larger alternator 140+ amps. If the problem still occurs when you have your new system input'd , I would suggest change your cap

Well if that is the largest alt you can find in your area. Then so be it. Search the web for larger ones for your car if there is.

I know a guy you can contact  if you would like to know  more about heavy duty systems. Such as competition and audio works.
check out his work at ww.hzemall.com  and email him. his name is Tim Ballie.

ok, this may be a dumb question. so if it is, be easy. but i was talkin to a few ppl and one of them suggested going and getting like a bus altinator or something of that size out a junk yard. is this completly ludicris or not? im not 100% sure if it would work of not. i know you'd have to make some type of brakets for it. but i was just wondering.
