dim lights dont know what to do

I have a 12 inch kicker solobaric with an 800 watt kenwood amp with 2 gauge rockford fosgate wiring kit, and when i turn up my music with my aftermarket kenwood deck, my lights flicker very bad... i recently added a 1.5 farad capacitor and it didn't help much... i don't know whether i need a stronger amp...a new stronger alternator or what...or change my wiring, i connected it with butt connectors and i dont know if soldering would make a better connection.. you guys have any suggestions it would be very helpful because i was thinkin of gettin a new alternator but thats 200$ so im going to see if it is maybe somethin little thanks neways
my car is a 2001 honda accord sedan dx

My first move would be a new battery, preferably an Optima yellow top battery. I had the same problem and I got the battery and was a quick fix. It's also great for cold starts.

If the battery doesn't solve the problem, I would recommend a high output alternator. I don't turn up the music up loud anymore, so I'm fine with just the battery upgrade.
