Mechman is the way to go for the HO Alternator. When purchasing batteries, make sure they're the same make & model. Finally, add 1/0 gauge Power Cable under the hood.

First off before we get to an alt, what amps, and what are you running?

Note: more then one battery is moot unless you play with your audio when your car is off.

You will need to replace your existing alt and replace it with a high output one.

No one will be able to answer this question until you tell us what you are running... HU/AMPS/PROCESSORS/SUBS.....

You most likely only need one High Output alt unless you are installing an insain amount of gear.

why do you have 2 DVD players?

Why would your converter (normally called a Power Inverter) only work for a Xbox360 or a PS3? Are you saying it would not power up an Wii or even an Atari 2600?
