the power from the amp/sub is drawing a lot of power from the altinator and battery.

make sure everything is wired right. amps will suck alot of power if there wired lower then what they are stable for. also since its free get your ALT and batt checked out. mind tellin us model and model numbers of stuff in the car?

Capacitors suck power from your battery also. If you run somthing else thats running your battery dry, sooner or later its gona give up. Get your battery tested and your alternator tested. Also make sure your gain on the amp isnt all the way up. If it is then lower it. Its sucking all the power.

They store power and when wired correctly will stop or reduce the amount of dimming of the headlights.

Does the dimming pulse with the bass?

U should read more into how they work and what's needed to make them work properly. If too much power is being drawn to begin with the cap never really fully charges deeming it useless.

You need a better battery. One made specifically for car audio.

the reason why your lights dim is because your amp is draining your battery.
you need to buy a capacitor which is really cheap at pawn shops and really easy to hook up.
i had the same problem with my sound system in my cb7 but when i bought a capacitor,i never had a problem.

Avoid capacitors. They are mostly for show, they drain your battery and give you the minimal of gain in your sound quality. It is a waste of money. It is better to upgrade your battery. Trust me. Its going to sound exactly the same with a capacitor, but with a better battery you can have it on longer and louder.
