1200 watts isnt too big of a load on a 2001 Altima...Upgrade your Big Three and your problem should be fixed...

Blowing up in a car accident doesnt worry me, as long as I'm putting out some major dB's when I die...

I agree with cloak. The Big 3 will be a minimal cost and may eliminate the need for the alternator...as well as the cap. The cap will NOT prevent your lights from dimming or help out your electrical system. That's not what it is designed for. Do a search on caps and you will find some good reading.

caps will help but only if the charging system and wiring cna keep up. They are not a good place to start though.

Future upgrades may put him in that position...but it may not. Why have him spend the money on a high output alternator if it isn't needed? Even with future upgrades...what are his future objectives? Pushing to get an alternator at this point, I think, is putting the cart before the horse.

Starting with the big 3 is very logical...If your going to get an HO alternator you will need to upgrade you big 3 anyway. So why not start with it and see if it fixes the problem...

Just my .02. Upgrade your wiring ie "the big 3" see were you stand (lights dimming anymore) than proceed with purchasing the ho alterantor.

yeah, i know, but you guys forgot he's using only 1 amp, what if he want to put another amp for the speakers?
I mean i have nothing against the big 3 he has to do it if he go with an HO Alt like Cloak said, but if i was him and i have the money i'll check an HO Alt. now, and already save that part for the future, beside it won't do any harm to his car electrical system. just my 2 cents.
