Is the upgraded alt purely to supply current to the amps while running or do you intend to upgrade the battery, which would no doubt require the power module be reprogrammed to accommodate the increased current rating.

I know that many guys that run big systems have an extra battery that is preferably agm in the trunk with a high output alternator to feed the amps and drivers the necessary volts to have a "good" electrical current. On the forum I am on for car audio some vouches on the site that sells the alts for our cars saying that he has bought numerous other things with nice results. http://www.qualitypowerauto.com/catalog.php?item=368
Thats the site
