I am planning on buying 2 12" 500watt rms subs. I will have a hifonics 1000watt amp to power them. My car is a 1999 4runner with a brand new battery (old one died). I also have a 1 farad cap in the back (After I bought it I learned it doesnt help that much :p ) Anyway, do you guys think my car can handle the subs? And if I need to upgrade things, please put it in plain ol english =)

simply put: no way to tell.
you need to put the system in and let it break in.
if you have problems with lights dimming and such then you'll know if you need to upgrade the alternator and charging system.
That's pretty much how it works.
here's a bit more on the topic though if you're interested:

Thanks for the reply glasswolf, interesting stuff to read :-) . You have any idea where I can find out what the stock "Hot Rating" FOr my alternator is? (99 toyota 4runner)
