Default Alternator

I have a Cruiser with 1 red top Optima in front and 1 yellow top in the back, I have added a lot of stereo items. I have to jump the car every time I drive it. While driving, I have 13+ amps, but when I shut it off, it dies totally and have to jump again. I know others who have lots more stuff in their Cruisers and still have the factory alternator. Everything was professionally installed and wired. I had the electrical system checked, it was ok factory wise. I know I need a hi output alternator, but no one offers one. Talked to Ohio Generator, Stinger,Mechman, and others, nothing out there. I am running 5000 watts in the stereo, and am at a loss how to proceed. Any ideas?
