Default 95 Bonneville SSE Alternator Size?

What'* the size on a 95 SSE? 140, same as the SSEi?
For some reason there'* little accessible info on the SSE model..

If it is indeed 140 amps, will it be able to handle a 600w amp (250 RMS) with a 1000w sub (200 RMS) along with an aftermarket headunit and the usual stock electronics. (Since it is packed with all kinds of gadgets.) Will I notice much dimming or flickering, or even stock electronics failure and glitches?

Your RPO sticker that is on top of your spare tire cover will tell you what it came with.
