well voltage drops are common with a audio system so in short no it won't hurt anything can it be better yes since your car was not designed from a audio stand point there are improvements to be made later on.Maaaaaan I just wanna know if this **** is bad.
You just never know with electrical components/parts.Brand new, have lasted me as much as a week(alternator,a battery 4months) due to issues with the brand new units bought.I went through 4 alternators before I actually got one that worked properly on a 93 civic from Orileys,and 2 sets of Brand New Redtop Batteries(no longer as good as the old ones,Costco even dropped from selling them)Ive had a stock alt last 3yrs on a 4yr old battery??Its always a gamble with electrical, but you take preventive measures to ensure better current flow,and constant voltage regulation.If you ever have to replace the stock alt.,i recommend getting the biggest one over the counter you can get,before upgrading to an expensive HO alt.And get a good batt.Hell you might be just fine for 1-2 yrs, or you may be only a week away from replacement..Who Actually Knows??Oh I hear ya. It doesn't bug me at all and I don't have the money or time to do the big 3. I just want to know if my alternator or anything else will go out if I don't do anything.
If u dnt have 10-15mins and $20 bucks to do your big 3 then you sir are in the wrong hobby. Do u even monitor ur voltage???Oh I hear ya. It doesn't bug me at all and I don't have the money or time to do the big 3. I just want to know if my alternator or anything else will go out if I don't do anything.
Well since u dnt seem to care about ur voltage and you have no way of checking it then yes it can be very bad. For all u know ur dropping into the 11v range and if thats the case you could do alot of damage to your amps and of course your killing your alt... So yea be cheap now but be prepared to pay alot later..No I don't. That's besides the point. I never said I wanted to fix the dimming, just was woundering what could come from it.
