    Music cuts out at high volume bass notes

    I have an 07 Mustang GT with the stock alternator. A kicker zx700.5 (kicker rated at 953) running 4 kicker ks68's and a CVR 12". Ive had it for about a month and yesterday the music started cutting out when i turned the volume up and a bass note hit. The music would start again when it was vocal notes only, then cut out again on bass notes. If i turn the volume down, then it plays normally. Im wondering if the culprit is too much power being drawn for the alternator to handle or possibly a blown voice coil or bad ground wire? Any suggestions or ideas wold be greatly appreciated

    I have 4 guage wiring

    I had a jl 500/1 and I had the same problem. When the voltage gets below a certain amount to the amp they'll shut off. I had cheap wiring with that problem, upgraded to stinger pro 4 gauge . Fixed the problem.

    ^something could be shorting out or something . Check and see if there are any holes in your power wire.

    Check your ground as well.

    When bass notes hit on low volume, the sub sounds strange but it still kinda works. It sounds very ping-y and distorted
