The amps sometimes thud when they are turned on or off. The bassline is whats causing the dimming. Some peeps have got round this by adding a second battery and a split charger or some have just added power caps.

I'll be putting 2 amps in mine hopefully if my latest idea actually manages to take off this time. I'm gonna have to look into a power cap myself I think.

power caps do actually increase the problem, not too sure about the science behind it, but the cap's charge will need replacing after every beat, so it will not eliminate dimming lights. There isnt really that much you can do about it, apart from fitting a beefier alternator!

powercaps dont totally eliminate the problem, however they do help

the best way to get around this is to give your CD player its own live direct to the battery, and its own earth direct to the bodywork, cures 99.9% of common problems with lights dimming
