Will a secondary battery and all wires upgraded to 0/1 gauge push 2500 watts rms without alternator upgrade?

Asked by Aug 12, 2015 at 02:02 AM about the 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS Short Bed 2WD

Question type: Car Customization

I have an 03 silverado with two l7 15" subs on a kicker zx2500.1 amp. Will adding a
second battery and upgrading all wires to zero gauge keep my lights from dimming and
push the amp to its full potential? Would I need to upgrade my alternator to keep them
charged? Thank you in advanced.
