I have a 2000 VW Jetta i'm planning on putting a 1200 watt rms amp powering a solobaric L7 and a 400 watt rms amp powering 4 mid range speakers, a 30 band equalizer, and a alpine dvd player with a motorized screen and an extra 7 inch lcd in the trunk lid, now i'm assuming my stock alt and battery will not be able to power all this, or am i wrong? what do i need to get in order for everything to run smoothly?

your gonna need about a 200 amp alternator for sure. might want to look into an Optime Yellow TOp too. always a good idea to change battery out as well.
