Be careful with the gain. That amp probably doesn't do rated power, but if you clip it there may be enough power available to damage your subs.
I would definitely agree that you're going to need an alt upgrade for your car. 170A should be MORE than enough. That will more than double your stock alt's output. Even at idle you'd probably have 50A of free current -- that translates into a TON of audio (music) power.
