Back to the question of the amplifier types, buy a modern Class D amplifier for subs and the fronts. These are the most efficient. A Class D amplifier running at 4ohms can easily be more than 80% efficient, and around 75% when running at 2ohms. The Class A/B amps have efficiency of around 60% or so when running at full tilt.
Of course, if you experience the problems with lights dimming, do the big 3 upgrade, and also run a high quality 4awg or 0awg cable to your distribution block from the battery. A lot of cheaper 4awg kits are a joke.
