    Alternator help

    I have infinity speakers and subs.the subs max out at about 950 watts. I got a 5000 watt amp but I am not sure on what alternator I should purchase. I have a 2002 Grand Prix gt with a 3.8l v6. I cans spend about 170 or so on an alternator. Thanks in advance

    Well i doubt its a true 5000 rms amp what amp and model? and u arent gona find a decent alt for 170...all the good companies will be around 350-500 ..depending on the power that amp does id say a good agm battery or 2 would do fine

    The amp does about 300 rms when bridged. I need a new alt regardless but don't need one that's huge.problem is when I turn up my speakers my lights dim pretty badly.
