Sometimes my Valentine even loses power during one of these episodes. My bet is this is not good.
My hypothesis is that the subs are drawing more power than my alternator is capable of generating while also running everything else, so I get a brown-out. What can I do to remedy this situation? Is this a sign that my alternator is going bad, or perhaps my battery?
