First off, I would do the "Big 3", which is upgrading your under-hood wiring for the following connections: alternator positive to battery positive, battery negative to chassis, battery negative to engine. Most folks use 1/0 AWG cable to do this... It looked like my stock wiring (including the battery positive to alternator) was 8ga, which is going to result in a significant voltage drop if you are wanting to draw full current from your alternator (e.g. full 140a or whatnot).
Then, I'd look at an upgraded alternator. You could call a local rebuilder and see what they can build. There are a few other places (such as Ohio Generator, Mr. Alternator, etc) that you can check out as well. If you have a 105a alternator, head to any local autoparts stores and get the 140A stock version if you can't afford to do a aftermarket one. If you play your system when your car is off, I'd also look into doing a dual-battery setup, with a high-current relay (Stinger makes a good one I hear) seperating a deep-cycle battery (to run the system when your car is off) and the starting battery. You could get a diode-based battery seperator, but those will result in a voltage drop across the diode and are an older design.
