Icon5 Battery and other problem

Ight so here's the problem i was driving my prelude blasting the subs out n suddenly the speedometer needles went to zero and the gears stopped changing n i got stuck on 3rd and i thought turning off my car n turning it on again will cure the problem but no my car died on the main intersection n later taking it to mechanic told me that its the alternator that died, second problem is that when i step on the gas pedal flat out first it thinks and then gains race.

So i am just wondering that i have real powerful stereo system and cops light ( the same ones that cops use to pull over people ) and with the stereo i have a capacitor and all this is using the same battery power n mechanic told me all this stuff cused the alternator to blew any ideas what can i do to cure the problem even tho my battery is bigger then the recommended size and the gas pedal thing new one knows what causing that ??

You should consider maybe having another battery that just powers your sound system so it doesn't drain so much from your main battery...

Re: Battery and other problem

^^^ affirm. If you have such a powerfull system you need to run some extra batteries. Your capacitor is good for a burp of sound in competition not a constant drain.
