Default Will I need a new Battery for my System?

So Im getting a 1999 Ford Taurus in couple days, its in the shop getting a pump put in, and Im going to be getting 2 Kicker CVR 12's and a Kenwood 1800W amp, but I'm only going to be pushing 900w to both of the subs combined. Will I need to get a new battery, or will the stock battery in the Taurus be enough for the system?

How old is your current battery? Are you going to be using a capacitor at all?

Post up the amp. The cvrs don't handle that kind of power. I run a kicker l5 and a kenwood excelon amp that runs about 450 watts continuous using a small 1.1 farad cap off the stock battery system in my blazer. If that amp is pushing what I think it is, you'll probably be fine.
My rides:
--2012 Chevy Sonic LT hatch back w/1.4 liter turbo w/100k
--2005 Chrysler Pacifica w/175k - SOLD!
--1987 Chevy R10 Pickup w/80k
--1997 4.3L Chevy Blazer w/193k- SOLD!
--1998 Oldsmobile Aurora w/190k - SOLD!
