    How Big of an Alternator do I need?

    I have:

    1400 Watt + Sub amp
    300+ x 2 Comps Amp
    500 Watt Midbass amp
    Kenwood HU (possibly later a DVD/7" indash screen)
    Kenwood Keg

    After installing my 300x2 amp, I noticed on my Voltage Meter that it drops from 14 Volts down to 12-13 everytime the Sub pounds, and the lights dim, and the tweeters cant get enough power to sing...


    how big should I get?
