Do I Need A Capacitor?

Okay guys I asked for reccomendation on ideas before now I have my setup ready to install when I get home for summer.

Pioneer Gm-5300T that puts out about 150 watts to each speaker rms

2 Sony 6x9 4 ways

8 gauge power/grd wires

Optima red top battery

I am going to run an RCA to 3.5mm cable into the amp to hook my ipod right up. No head unit or any other speakers.

Its in a 68 Coupe with nothing on it. Interior is gutted. Alternator is a brand new Motorcraft one. There is no AC, no radio, no other nonsense to run. The alternator basically keeps the battery charged and I turn headlights on for the few times I drive it at night. It never goes more than 15 miles or so away from home. The remote turn on will go to my key with a switch to flip when I want music.

Do I need a capacitor? I need to see what my alternator puts out being an old car, but I think it should put out plenty.
