    You should be running 0g if you're pushing 1000+ watts through it. You need to get the right fuse to match the size of the wire. Here is a great guide to help you get the stuff you need: Wire/Fuse Guide - Electrical-battery- Alternators- Wiring - SMD Forum

    According to that guide, with 1/0g wiring, you should use a fuse no larger than 325 amps. For 4g wiring, you should use a fuse no larger than 125 amps.

    Don't really need a high output alt until like the 2000 watt mark or so. That's what I heard anyways.
