a couple of things to mention.
theoritically your amps will draw around 200 amps at full power burps. your vehicle needs 20, 30, maybe 40 amps to run (vehicle dependant)
soo your alternator will power one of those amps at full power at 14.4 volts, but youll need more power to back up the second amp. batteries are what you want. however, you wont need a huge amount of battery power. i suggest one or two good batteries, depending on money situation.
upgrade the alternator to battery wire with at least 4 gauge wire. upgrade the battery ground with 1/0 or bigger. upgrade the alternator ground (engine ground strap) to something bigger, maybe 4 gauge would be good.
however.. if you already have the alternator i would try that with whatever battery you have now and see how that does.... you may not need any extra batteries.. but i would still upgrade the wires thou..
