    Do I need a better alternator?

    I currently own a 2002 wrx and have the following electronics. I have not installed all of them yet because I am afraid the stock alternator might be to small. What I have is...

    12" kicker solar beric sub (750-1500w)
    2 pyramid amps
    800w 2 channel
    400w 4 channel
    4- 150w 5 1/4" speakers
    Sony CDX-M8800 cd/mp3 reciever 52Wx4 max
    In-dash 7 1/2" motorized monitor
    underbody neons
    2- 10" blue neon tubes for the trunk

    Help me out here...the only thing I wouldnt mind giving up are the trunk neons and if I REALLY need to the underbodies. and if I need a better alternator where can I get a good deal?

    I don't know if you can get a better alternator, but I'd at least get a capacitor or two for that kind of set up.
    BTW, this thread should be in the "cockpit and cabin" section.

    Good luck,
