Having a slightly odd issue with my stereo. Basically all the speakers which are amped (1 10" sub 2 and 6.5" coax on the back deck) cut out or get quiet in certain situations.
The more accessories I have going (wipers, AC, lights, etc) the more often it happens, it usually occurs when i hit the breaks.
Here are the specs for the system:
Pioneer head unit (older model 4x65watt output)
Dedicated sub amp, bridged to 300watt RMS running a JL 10w3v3
Dedicated Rear amp, 2x65watt RMS going to blapunkt 6.5" coax on the rear deck, also 65watt RMS
2 Farad Cap inline before the splitter that goes to the amps.
Wiring from the battery the cap to the splitter to the amps is 8g
Wiring from the sub amp to the subs is 8g
Wiring from the rear amp to the speakers is 12g
My thinking so far is that the alternator (70amp) can't handle everything.
So two part question:
Am I on the right track with thinking its the alternator
Is there a more powerful alternator available for my car.
