    upgrading electrical

    so I'm ready to start upgrading my electrical and I'm looking for advice

    vehicle is a 00 civic sedan

    system is as follows

    KDC-x696 HU
    Hertz 6.5 front door speakers
    stock rear deck speakers
    VVME (audiopipe) apsm-1500.1 sub amp
    2 12" kicker L7 solobarics

    electrical: stock alt
    4 gauge scoshe amp kit (120 amp fuse)
    POS 1 farad cap

    I would like to break up the electrical into different steps and I would like to know what I should do first.

    1. ditch cap
    2. big 3
    3. 0 ga wire
    4. upgrade to AGM battery (when it's time, which one?)

    tell me what you guys suggest.

    If you are thinking about going bigger in the future, you should look into getting a HO alt. there's actually a member selling one on here right now for a pretty fair deal EA 225 amp alternator for GM or 96-00 civic
