It sounds like the power output isn't sufficient to power your system...in order to solve the problem an alternator with a higher amperage output needs to be installed.

a yellow top optima battery also may help with the alterator

Nah, it'll only damage your system. Capacitors will hardly make up for a five amp difference and even then they still aren't good for your alternator.
