I have a Kicker zR1000 pushing 2 Kicker Solo Baric 12L5s subs, for my electrical system I have a yellow top optima and the stock alternator, which is 60 amps. If I upgrade to a high output alternator, say 150 amps, will I notice a difference in the sound of my bass? Will it sound louder?

not at all... bass will still sound the same, but you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that your bassing is a lot easier on your car's electrical system ;)

Also, you run a much smaller risk of damaging your amplifier, because amplifiers can get badly damaged if they don't receive enough current. With a yellow-top and the amp only pushing two 12L5s you shouldn't have a problem, even with only a 60 amp alternator, but if you get a bigger alternator, it'll be able to feed the amp, battery, and car much easier.
