Question about Kenwood KAC-728S Car Audio Amplifier
Do you use the supercap (the big 1 farad capacitor)?
If not, then the current peaks to the subs could cause the amp to loose power for its own operation so it crashes down a little bit every now and then, but then it recovers when the current draw diminishes.
Also, it could be a battery problem, try to check the liquid level in each cell and add distilled water if necessary, if it doesn't help, it could be that the first cell at the positive terminal of the battery is "cooked" because of a lot of discharging / recharging (it does happen, but if your car has no problems starting then the battery is probably still good).
To see if the battery is the problem, try connecting a battery that you know is still good (you might want to borrow it from someone so you don't have to buy a new one right away).
If you do have the supercap and you're absolutely sure the battery is good, then the problem might be in the power amp itself, also check the wiring and speaker impedance, if it's significantly lower than 4 ohms (standard impedance for car audio), then the speakers just might be wired in a way that your amp doesn't support, so they're juicing the amp a bit too much and it goes into overload protection when you turn the volume way up.
It could be that the problem is somewhere else, i just mentioned a few things i would have checked.
