Default new alternator?

I know this has probably been gone over a billion times on here, but there are too many posts to sort through to find the answer to this:

I am getting my new system installed next week, and have 2 amps and will be running about 700 watts rms, will I need a bigger alternator, a better battery, or will the ole quick fix of a capacitor work?

you really shouldnt have a problem with 700 RMS.....i prolly would upgrade the Alt maybe to like an AC Delco 140 and a Optima if $$ is no factor
