Don't overlook two things that are sometimes forgotten in this equation:
1- Make sure to add in your front stage amp.
2- Take into account that your SUV will use around 30%-40% of the alternator's amperage to run.

i had pcx1500 and it killed my battery in the winter so i would be careful w/ the kx1200 thats probably pushin the limits, if you do use it just make sure you have a good battery

i'd run 700w rms on that alternator with a yellow top in the front and a big 3 with thicker wires like 4 AWG or thicker
