Mi lights dim everytime mi speakers beat


simple issue means your alternator is not able to supply enough amps to keep the system running properly, recommendation get a capacitor to handle the extra load, it acts like a second battery, when the alternator charges the cap it takes the load off the cap rather then the battery, so the lights and system all run with sufficient power i recommend a 1 to 2 farad capacitor for your system if it is about 800+ watts, you will notice the difference immediately

When my bass hits, my car lights flicker.


Is the problem much more noticeable when the car is at idle? Double check that Alternator output. 70 amps is not high output, and if the problem is especially noticeable at idle, it's probably due to the alternator putting out lower voltage( a common thing with alternators). Also, with that much draw from your sub amp, the wire from battery to alternator should be beefed up, as well as the ground wire from battery. You can make up your own cables by purchasing the wire to length and wire lugs at a local Welding shop, 4 gauge from alternator to battery is good. High output aftermarket Alternators shoot into the 200 amp range.

there should be a small sesistor soldered onto where the wires are, if so, then this has blown, in some cases,you can remove this, but you will lose any overload protection that it was originaly put there for

Rockford Punch HE2 wiring question.


if your sub will handle it, bridging it will give you more power. The best thing to do is to find out how much power the amp puts out ( RMS ) and if it is in your power handling range bridge it. It sounds better and gives you a harder punch because of more power.
