Stereo Upgrade Question.

I'm looking to upgrade my stereo in my daily driver a "little bit" and wondering if you guys think I need to further upgrade the electrical system. I'm still unsure if I'm going to need to run a second battery for this maybe someone here might know a little bit more on the subject.

What I have

Alpine 9886 Head Unit
Alpine 6.5 Component Front Speakers
Alpine 6X9 Rear Speakers
Alpine 600 watt 4 Channel amp (driving speakers)

What I want to add

Amplifiers - 2 Alpine MRP-M2000 (2000 watts RMS, 4000 watts peak.... each)
Subwoofers - 2 Alpine SWX 12 Inch (1500 watts RMS, 3000 peak... each)
Capacitor - Absolute CAP8000 (80 Farad capacitor)
Alternators - 2 Iraggi 300amp (180 amps at idle... each)
Battery - Optima Red top
Wiring - 0 guage power and grounds.

Thats going to be pretty demanding on one battery. Just remember SAC and PVC. (Series)- Amps are constant. (Parallel) - Volts are constant. You dont want to fry anything with a 24V hit.
