Dead alt,

use 0ga wire,

bad batteries,

What is the max volume on your headunit? I saw it go up all the way to 55 in the video.

You are trying to get WAY more power from your amp than it can realistically put out. If you dont have a DD1, you should invest in 1.

Ur alternator is probably toast dude, and only 1 run of 4 gauge probably isn't enuff I'd upgrade to 1/0 man!

Go to auto zone, they check out ur alt and test ur batt and alt for fweeee!

how are you dropping that much? i have no big three or anything and i'm running one ohm and only dropping to 12.3 volts from 13.6, prehaps run some 0 gauge to help with current?

or maybie a bad ground since that can screw with the voltage

The only way to delete your SMD account is for you crawl to steve meades door step on your knees and pleade for his forgiveness and acceptance to be released...He will either grant your wishes.....or choke you with a large piece of 0 gauge and electrocute you by hooking up a solid gold DC 12k at 0.000001 ohm and 10000 volts to your eye sockets and blow your head apart

You guys act like you have never clogged a toilet and ran around the bathroom frantically hoping it don't overflow.
