that 200A should do the job. If you plan to run the entire system at full blast for long periods though you may want to have a 300A alternator custom built for you, and have it put in additionally to the one used for the rest of teh car.
that's going to be a heck of a lot of current draw from two 1500 watt amps, and a third 4 channel

www.4alterstart.com for the alternator
for batteries, they'll really only help when the engine is off by prolonging play time. you'd want a battery isolator rated for the current of the alternator, and additional deep cycle batteries dedicated to the audio system
