Thank you everyone for your inputs, I greatly appreciate it.slawkins31 said:Several suggestions:
1. Get a 1 farad capicitor.
2. Use 4 guage wire for all wiring
3. Look at the amp when it is playing, my amps have a CLIP light that comes on. Sometimes your head unit cannot handle the power of the amps and either the head unit will "clip" (cut-off) or the amp can do it. What I did on mine to relieve the problem was to turn off all loud functions or "SLA" functions on the head unit and let the volume control the loudness. I also turned down the gain on my mids and highs amp and again let the volume control it. This solved my problem of the amp cutting off while songs were hitting.
Recommendation: Try step 3 first, then go to your others. Also, in the long run, you will be glad if you have a capacitor, your batter and alternator will thank you at around 40 or 50k miles.
Slawkins31, i will try that step 3 trick, and hopefully it will help. I have a Pioneer head unit DEH-p6700mp and it has those functions you were talking about.
Mexi i will also do the cabling you suggested. One question though, when you said to upgrade to an optima battery did you mean to change my old battery to that one? or did you mean to add the optima battery as a second battery?
And elduderino I will do the test and get back 2 you guys.
Oh yea, my speakers are wired in parallel.
Thanks again everyone! Hopefully my issues will get solved
