Default sound system

I am getting to upgrade my system from 500 watts to 1000 watts. This means that I will experience more dimming and i have come down to these options:
A.)better altenator - maybe get a new better one...from where though?
B.)Get a second battery in the trunk
C.)I got a capciter, didnt really help.
D.)Might get a yellow top battery
E.) I might do the "big 3" http://forum.sounddomain.com/ubb/ult...c;f=5;t=007801
the link there would explain that.
I don't know how to get rid of the dimming lights with my 500 watt subwoofer, let a lone, that if i get a 1000 watt system its gonna dim like crazy and i have heard the altenators dies due to all this wattage....

What shud I do!!!!!>

Which Alt do you have in the car now? (Amp)
They make a couple of different ones. The S80 Exucitive I beleive is a bigger one.


P.S. must be nice!!! I wish I could afford a bigger Amp. The 325 watt is getting old.

If you look close at the back of the Alt. it should tell you the Amps.
The excutive has a TV and navigation I would think it would work but not sure.
I think it is like $350.00.

The high beams and low beams are different bulbs.
