i will be running 1000rms at 1ohm and i was wondering if i should get a alt or if a cap would be ok. I can get the cap for about a thrid of the price so that would be nice but if it is pointless to get a cap then i guess ill have to suck it up and get a alt

Caps are bandaids at best. They don't "produce" any power at all. Have to go to the source. Alt baby.

The capacitor will put more of a load on your charging system not less. You need an HO alternator.

should be fine, but it won't hurt anything to get red-top...also, that way you will have it if you ever upgrade, same as with alt.
