OK, it is not a 2-channel amp it is a mono amp.  But assuming you really have purchased it and really want to use it, it can draw approximately 200 or so amps from your alternator with a 4-ohm load.  You need to upgrade your charging system to at least a 300-amp alternator (so you can still supply the loads of the car) and 1/0 gauge cables throughout for power, ground and the big 3.  In your car (since the battery is in the rear) that may cost about the same as this amp.  Take the car to a professional car audio installer and get some help.  Seriously.

I thought I smelled a nice amp hidden in your post. I agree with our fearless moderator, take it to a shop and have it done properly. Pay special attention to the ground for this amp.

Top Secret, I can tell you but then my wife will kill me.

Grounding is a major issue, make sure the connetion are good, you dont want anything to short out...
in that case, make sure fuses and protection devices are there...

Dimming lights? You need to worry about trailering your car.
