Default Electrical help: suggest me some things

I've been running my system, dropping to the low 11s at idle/full tilt, and I want a rock solid electrical for demoing and basic safety of my equipment. Can you guyd provide me with some help in how to achieve that. This is a daily system only, no comps, just hard demoing.

Right now I run:
2 Audiopipe 3ks
2 Audiopipe 200.4s
2 Treo SSX15s / 2 Orion HCCA15s
4 Selenium 6s
2 SS Supertweets

1 of each positive/negative 1/0
220a alt
XS Power VCM
Stock front, and 2 Deka Intimidators in the rear.

I was thinking of buying different 3k amps, but I think I'd still have voltage issues running 6k no matter what amps I used. Help me out. I want to hold at least 13s full tilt, at idle

could try adding at least 1 more run of wire. since you do have 2 big amps back there. along with that, another 2 or so deka's should do the job if you can fit them

Ok, so if i get an XS D3400 in the front ( I was going to do that soon anyway), and another 2 runs of 1/0, would that help me out?
Yeah the AP3ks are a bit greedy, but in my 2yr experience, they are reliable

I also thought of selling the APs and getting a single 5-7k amp. Would that make a difference?

Have you had any of the batteries load tested? Have you tried charging them with an external battery charger?
Give your batteries a good charge for a couple days on 2a trickle charge. Then see how the do.

They were load tested a couple of weeks ago, and were fine, but I'll do it again if needed. With the car off, I stay at 13.1-13.2. Is that good?

Resting voltage is not always a sign of charge state. A battery will have a higher resting voltage shortly after running the vehicle but can fall up to .5v over the coarse of 12hrs.
Did you load test each battery individually or as a bank?

separately. I didn't test the stock front batt, but it's only about a month old, and I plan to either get a shuriken or d3400 for the front this weekend.
