Here is what i am gonna put in my car:
-MB Quart PCE 216 speakers in the front and rear
-Diamond D600.4 to run the speakers
-JL 10W7 sub
-Diamond D1200.1 to run the sub
-Eclipse 8053
-Optima Battery Yellow
(Everything here is still undecided)

My concern here is will my car be able to hadle it? I own a 1994 Subaru Impreza. I know capacitors are said to help and i have also read that i should just change my alternator to save the rest of my cars electronics and my system. Any recomendations???

If you upgrade the battery to that Optima (which are nice) than you shouldnt have many problems. I would first install everything and then see how much of a differance it makes on you car. You never know mabey you wont need to put in alot of power upgrades.

try the system stock. see if it works.
if you have problems with lights dimming and voltage rails sagging, then look at upgrading the battery and possibly the alternator.
