I'm gonna be running one Kicker L7 15" (2ohm DVC) powered by a Kicker KX850.2 bridged at 4 ohms stable. Am I going to have alternator/battery problems? If so...what can I do about it? Dry cell? Capacitor?

no way to know till you wire it all up
if voltage rails sag, and lights dim etc, then you need a high output alternator

Depend's on what type of car, but I would say a good 2/300 bucks. Check out www.4alterstart.com for HO alt's.

ok, forget that battery thing, it sounds like a sh!tty idea. I'm lookin for high output alternators all over and i've found a few. but how many amps should i look for?

Well, you might not even have alternator problems with just a 800 watt amp. But, if you upgrade in the future, I would recomend at least a 200A alternator... if you can get the biggest one you can. It's never a bad idea to have more amps.:-)
