This never happened until I put the cap in, if that helps.

bonnevilles have 140A alternators and you have a 1kw and 300w amp. thats nothing a 140A alt cant handle. i think that its that cruch amp thats messing everything up

do you have an amp that you can borrow from a friend?

Mine came with a 105. I just got a 140. I'll take the ground off the cap and see what happens.

I would try cutting down the extra power wire under your box. If that isn't your problem atleast your install will be cleaned up a little.

A 140 amp alt will still dim, especially if you're doing 1300W. It puts out plenty of power, but the system is slow in response. I just installed a 140 amp alternator, I have an Optima Red top, and My Directed 400D Running @ 4 ohms is still (ever so slighly) dimming my lights slightly on peaky hits at high volume. Hell my High speed fan dims them for a second, before the regulator corrects.

A trip with the multimeter might show you what'* going on. Check between battery, cap, amp. Also check to see if the amplifier is going into a protection mode.
