Question Amp Power

i want to but 2 amps, a 4000 watt amp and a 800 watt amp , with the 4000 watt amp i am purchasing a 1.0 farad capacitor, i was wondering how much power i would need to run this system? would the stock alternator do it? or would i need a more powerfull one like a ambulance alternator. Thanks

Default current

Well worst case cenario assuming youre running the first amp at its max(dont know why you would) at .5 ohms and the secound amp at 70w x 4 (all ratings RMS ) i get a current of 97 amps.
