JBL makes good amplifiers. anything in the 50 watts x 4 to 80Wx4 is a good range for coaxials and components.

just about all amps made today have a built in HPF (high pass filter) so no crossover will be needed. If the head unit you use has 3 pair of RCA line-outputs, the head unit will also have a crossover built in.
If you already have at least 4 gauge wire from the battery to a subwoofer amp, then you'll want a fused distribution block (1 in to 2 out or 1 in to 4 out, 4awg through or 4awg in, 8awg out) and enough wire to run the second amp for both power and speakers (and remote) in addition to RCA cables (two pair)

sure thing! with the 0 gauge, just get a fused distribution block for 0 to 4 gauge 1 to 2 or 1 to 4. Then you can run each amp from the dist block.

The Clarion should have 3 pair of RCA preouts. one for subs, and one pair each for fronts and rears. that's all you should need. don't use both the head unit and amp crossovers together though. onse one or the other, else you will have problems. things like slope are cumulative and will have issues using both at once.

alternators aren't that hard. they have two bolts. one to pivot the alternator, and one to tension the belt.
If you can line up the holes, and fit the alternator in the space give, it will work.
It's not like matching a head gasket where it has to be precise.
