    gonna pull the system out and check all connections to be sure but dont think this is gonna be the problem. gonna double check grounds and cap wiring

    If you feel u need to seperate batts then get a isolater. It want fix your problem but do what ya do. P.S kick that cap in the water.
    Just in case you missed that.

    Re: did big 3 but didnt fix problem

    I agree with ditching the cap.. Has to be connections or alt with that kind've power IMO
    I'm running a 2500rms memphis amp and a 4chan memphis amp on stock battery/alt with big 3 done and on full tilt it never drops below 12v
    Still a little low for me though I'm gonna up battery and alt eventually

    Granted I'll say the stock interceptor battery/at is pretty big but not as big as yours, I think my alt is 140a

    Re: did big 3 but didnt fix problem

    looks like its the alternator after all. something to do with the voltage regulator inside it. Thats its not responding to the drop and demand for power. the tech says its common with these rebuilt beefed up alternators. gonna get it rebuilt , cheapest way to fix it. Everything else looks fine though all other wires are ok. its hodling a t 14.5 without a load but under load the alternator is f**Ed up and wont respond in time thats why it kicks off the subs and amps and everything else.

    What brand alt is it? Honestly it might be more worth your money to look into a DC Power or mechman alt, you could rebuild it and it could just start going out again, a lot of alts just arent meant to take extended loads

    Ya I mean I'm no mechanic or anything, sounds like an offbrand rewind to me, seems if you get it rebuilt/rewound it could just happen again, short of getting a well built one from the get-go
