    So the Audiopipe APSM-1500 should be fine on my electrical? It shouldn't be any more of a strain than the Sony even though it's more watts, because it's a Class D?

    It wasn't the amps causing the dimming. There was either a not-so-good ground, or a improper gain setting, or something going else on there.... Running that amp at 4 ohms is not going to draw much at all from your electrical system, as long as it's properly installed and set.

    Thanks man I needed that bit of reassurance! I'll make to sure to install everything correctly. I'll post some pics and what-not Friday when I'm setting it up to see if the ground is good and what-not. I picked up a DMM as well so I can set my gain properly following http://i76.photobucket.com/albums/j2...7/RMSchart.jpg.

    If I have any questions when installing and stuff I'll let you know but thanks for being a big help so far!
