Is this too much power for my electrical system

I am trying to plan out my SQ system, but I think that I have ran into a problem. I want to be sure that I will not put too much strain my electrical system. I have a 99 Honda Civic EX. Here is my plan:

Memphis 16-MC1000D - 1100w x 1 @ 1 ohm pushing 1 eD e12a.22 (sealed box)

Memphis 16-MC3004 - 75w x 4 @ 4 ohm pushing Diamond Hex 6.5 comps and possibly some rear fill (undecided about getting rear fill)

I have already ordered a 150 amp alternater. When I get and install the alt, I will put at least a 4 gauge wire from the alt to a Yellow Top battery.

Will I have enough power to power the system that I am wanting? Any input would be greatly appretiated (sp).

Thanks,

Matt

You will have plenty. You did the right thing by upgrading the alt first //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/handclap.gif.0c301076f534e244f0460706894f19e0.gif

I agree with the upgraded alternator. After you install everything take it to a alternator shop and have them check your current draw with your radio up loud and make sure it is less than 150 amps.

I believe your normal current draw is around 50 to 75 amps right now (with a/c) and you are adding another 50 amp or so draw so you should be good.

I think by upgrading the alternator u shouldnt have any probs with that system.That and a yellow top make a nice combination in any system.
