Default Electrical Upgrade Advice: HELP!

Im waiting for my Audiopipe 3000 to come in. I've been told that it is a 2 ohm stable amp bridged, and i will be running it at 2 ohms, (dual 4 9512G). My truck already has 0 gauge wire, but that's it. I dont plan to play my system at full tilt, nor do I plan to compete, just a loud daily setup.

Electrical is stock. Alternator will stay stock for now, I dont have money right now.

Found a guy asking $275 obo on craigslist for a kinetik 2400, and a bunch of red and yellowtops going for about $100. Could I get away with running one kinetik 2400 under hood for a little while? Also thinking about getting the Red Top for under hood, and the kinetik for out back?

Also, opinions on batcaps? im unfirmiliar.

Thanks for any help

At least get the 2400. A second larger battery under the hood would be a wise choice as well. I wouldn't go for a Redtop though..
You should also look into doing the Big 3.

After my experience with Optima, I wouldn't go with either the red or yellow top. Mine somehow melted a hole on the bottom positive side of the battery.

Like johncon mentioned, I would get the 2400 and do the big 3.

Your stock alternator may handle everything for a while, but you'll shorten the life of it quite a bit. Do all the upgrades on electrical that you can afford right now and save for a decent h.o. alternator. It'll save you a lot of headaches down the road.
