Yeah, I would definitely get a new alternator, and maybe even a capacitor. If the lights are dimming get a new alternator or a capacitor. The cap will help the dimming lights, but if you are running below 12v you will need to replace the alternator so that you have enough juice to power everything.

I agree the new alt is your best first step. I was running a fosgate 500watt and soundstream 300 watt with HO alt, and it took care of my headlight dimming and voltage drops. Next best step is a 1-2farad cap, if the alt doesnt work by itself. Good luck

You just found your own solution. Move the DSP elsewhere. The RCA is triple protected but not the RCA plugs. I do not know if there is a mesh or board available that blocks RFI. I know of wallets...

What the ****? Are you trying to put ohm's law into very complicated verbiage?

Your math might make a lot more sense when playing a Sin wave. Music doesn't draw near as much current. Hence why I was able to keep a 60amp fuse intact for 2 years.
