Boss audio with kicker L7 good combo? BLX3500M amp inparticular?
Don't worry your alternator is going to be OK. Amperes is the name of the unit used to measure electric current. 1000 w are powerful but note enough to kill your alternator. I recommend using a capacitor (about $40 - 100) which will prevent the amp to draw a lot of current in a given moment, thus eliminating the dimming of your car's lights when a hard bass is playing. Also try replacing the factory speakers otherwise within a few months you will be buying another set because of the power of the amp.
JL Audio W3 question?
no it will not! but with that for best quality get some good speakers subwoofers and a better stereo if its the cars stok stereo! you will be fine
Amplifier Impedence question?
You will be fine, I have had subs and an amp in my 97 for about 4 years now and the alternator is just fine. You might find that your lights dim down and you might want to but something to solve that. I have a battery hooked up in my trunk just for my subs and my alternator is still going strong.

no one who intends to live beyond 35, who ever wants to hear their little girl whisper, "Daddy, I love you...", who wants to go to sleep at night without their ears ringing incessantly for YEARS-NONSTOP FOR YEARS should ever be in a small space with that much audio power.

I know it's not the most powerful system ever, but like in my case, when you start adding too many components and it's summer and your running you A/C on top of all that, then you might have a problem eventually.
Faceplate not working on new head-unit!!?
If you're going with just a 1000w amp, then you should be safe, but if you're going to start installing alot of other components I would suggest looking into a High Output Alternator to replace the one in your car.
Opinions - Best subwoofer made, cost no issue.?
If you are asking this question, chances are your amp is not running a true 1000watts. 1000watts may just be the peak performance rather than the RMS(which will probably be 250-500watts RMS ). If that be the case, then your regular alternator will be fine. Don't waste your money on any capacitors, most will not do anything, even though some people swear by them. It's amazing what marketing can do to the mind. Anyway ,If you run into any issues with lights dimming follow these THREE rules.They range from cheapest upgrade to most expensive(1) Upgrade your wiring. Very simple and cheap to do. If the situation doesn't improve upgrade your battery to OPTIMA Red Top or Yellow Top. If that fails, upgrade to a high performance alternator. I don't have enough time to write a step by step instruction, but you can find these information on most automotive forums, i.e. maxima.org,. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON CAPACITORS!!!
How to tune audio crossover in my car?
Right on Tony I hear you. I've always kept that in mind. And I totally agree with goodfreddy 100%. Caps are not worth a damn. Get a HO alternator no matter what. Otherwise just putting in a system is just half of the setup. Don't borderline your alt do it the right way,

Failure to do this will result in you replacing them anyway as the alternator will eventually fail.
