Hello Jason, I just finshed putting a seceret audio with a CD player in my 67 Camaro with a stock alternator. I found that it was ok but when running the unit and my headlights I lost a lot of the bright light in the lights. I have now upgraded to a 105 amp output alternator. It has helped alot.

Upgrade to an internal regulated alternator. With all that juice running your system your stock alternator my not be able to keep your ignition running at idle.
