I was gonna go upgrade my system. right now its only a 500 watt mac audio amp. I was wondering how big (how many watts) can the amp be without putting too much stress on the stock battery and alternator

Mines at 1550 W with a max power output at 2400 W, but my buddy is running an alpine at 2200 W and he is still using his stock battery/alternator..you will have some light dim though on bass hits

im running a 1000 watt RMS amp and a 650 watt RMS amp on the stock battery. i have no idea what my peak power is but its definatly up there.

I think you should be fine, but expect your lights to dim when your sub hits.
