    Doesnt really matter what kind of power. Go overkill, So later on your power equipment will be able to power a better system.

    Better than a 140 amp alternator, No more than a 250.

    www.h-o-alternators.com

    A Deep Cycle battery, suggesting an Optima Yellow Top, call their customer service and tell them your vehicle type, and they will suggest two model numbers. One for the Red Top, and one for the Yellow Top. Go and buy the Yellow top model. www.1st-optima-batteries.com

    THEN, have your new alternator installed by a certified professional. preferably someone certified to work on your brand of car..
    Make sure the zero gage power cables running to your trunk are all fused with the correct amperage. Try to get your hands on a capacitor of 10+ Farads. Hybrid capacitors are OK. www.stingerelectronics.com

    For battery terminals and power/speaker wire. visit the following sites.
