car alternator

Hi!im just wondering if an 80amp alternator can handle a 600watts rms amplifier? i have a 1993 toyota camry sedan with a v6 engine. So can my charging system handle 600 watts?

I currently have a 97 Cavalier with an 85amp alt and running 2.5k+ rms and only get dimming with volume over 30, 35 is max. I do have a 3 farad cap and 4ga big 3 done though. You should not have any problems with 600 watts. Make sure you have a big enough gauge wire from batt to amp(s) if dimming is bad then do the big 3 and see how it is. Should be good to go
