Default High output alternator/performance question

I have a 1993 bonneville se and i am planning on putting in a ridiculously loud sound system but i can't seem to find a website that has a high output alternator for my bonne.....and one more thing i would like to do something to improve the performance of the bonne and make run a little faster than it is currently running. Any suggestion or ideas are greatly appreciated.

Can't really do much performance on your car other than a cold air intake and exhaust, only good for a couple HP

I believe if you look up stinger high performance audio, they have custom order alternators. They run somewhere in the $500 - $800 range if I remember correctly.

Default Found alternator

I found a high output alternator for my 93 bonne se but it says that it'* a 14 volt alternator.... Would that mean i would need to find a 14 volt car battery or does it really make a difference as to what kind of car battery i should use???

Most alternators create around 14, that is right where it should be.
