    It very well could be.
    Grab a volt meter or a digital multi meter and see what your volts are at when you have the music on and the car running. And then post what your voltage starts at and drops too.
    Make sure you play a bass heavy song.

    what size power/ground wires? good grounds, good connections at the battery/fuses?..sounds like you are not getting good power to the amp if it is cutting out...*shrugz*

    One of my first systems I ran 1/0 gauge stinger wire. I had about 1k watts. And my music would cut out on the stock electrical.
    It has to be because of low voltage.
    Unless his cd/headunit is skipping.

    Sounds like a wiring or setting issue.

    To answer your other question, no adding batteries will not fix the problem. It is only a band-aid for it.
