Sorry, but I know absolutely nothing about Audio stuff and how it effects electrical system. but i know for sure if you hook up constant 100A load to 80A alternator it will burn diode bridge pretty quickly.

You will blow your stock alternator. I did the exact same thing and it lasted about 5 months before dieing. Plan to buy an alterstart.

you will be fine...
you will almost never see 100 amps out of your well amps....

I ran "125" amps on an 90 amp integra alternator without a problem


those fuses are worst case. you will probably not even get past 40 amps total draw at any one time...


now you should upgrade your alternator anyways, since everyone knows that delphi is ****.....and the alternators are prone to failure under stock condtitions as well....

thats really the best thing to do...
that way YOU can decide and learn your self if it will work,....

and here is a hint for you...if you draw higher than the biggest fuse in the car which is (......the 100 amp main fuse), you will blow it ...so 100 amps isnt too high....you might be dipping into your battery alot, and mabyee need a cap....but you should be fine...
