    new system in 2003 civic si

    Finally putting a new system in my si.
    To start I will be running my sae-1000 and a eclipse 88150dvc dual 4ohm sub. I have a 1/0 run of cable from battery to hatch. Will my stock 90amp alternator keep up?

    I do plan to get rid of the tiny underhood battery and use 2 group 65 AGM's in the hatch and add a 100-150x4 amp for door speakers and rear fill along with big 3. Will stock 90amp still keep up with that much draw with 2 batteries. I found a 130 amp alternator on eBay for a reasonable price. Would that keep up?

    I'm not new to the car stereo scene, but this will be the biggest system I've had. And want to do it reasonably right.

    in the future i do plan to add a 100 or 150ishx4 amp to power doors and rear fill. and possibly a pair of 8's at 1ohm load. will the stock 90amp alt and dual batts cover that much load?
