A batcap or a Kinetik by the amp should help out a little. For a Kenetik I would go with the HC1440. For the Batcap, probley the 800. For the amount of watts your running I would go with a good size batt, but when it comes down to it your still putting more strain on the alternator.

Nothing can make up for a weak alternator...as it supplies ALL Power when the engine is running

Run a big battery or two, bump it for a year or two or until your alternator dies, then buy a new alternator.
