Upgrading my car's electrical

I'm trying to figure out how much it will cost me if I get a new set of subs and a amp.
This is what I'm looking at getting..

PIONEER PREMIER TS-W3001D2
HIFONICS BXI2006D
TSUNAMI PP1010DM-CAP (needed?)
ALPINE CDA-9885
STREETWIRES PS00BX 1/0 GAUGE AMPLIFIER AMP KIT(good brand? idk)
I think thats everything.. It'll be a while yet before I get it.
But what I'm wondering is what would I have to do to my car, 2000 Pontiac Sunfire 2.2L 2200SFI, so that the charging system can handle this big of a system. I will also do the big 3 I guess, if I can ever get to the store to get some wire for it.
Would I need a high output alternator?

Yes, but isn't your car a V6? Alt may be different. I wonder if I ran two stock ones, would that help?
