Question about Power Acoustik Car Audio & Video
This sounds like a cap breaking down to me, under a load. Ohming out caps doesn't stress them, and they can still read good. I would concentrate on the electrolytics, especially the larger ones, in the power supply, as you suspect. Depending on the age of the device, sometimes techs just go ahead and replace them all, just to ensure a solid, lasting fix, since caps are the only really time sensitive components.
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.
