So, I've installed an LC7
for high to low conversion, a 4 channel Kicker
amp, four Kicker
KS 5.25" speakers, and a JBL
powered sub box.
It sounds really good, at least until I pull up to a stoplight. The Autostart feature kills the engine. Music still sounds good. The light turns green, and when the Jeep restarts, theres a slight pause in the music, and then a momentary increase in the volume, before everything goes back to normal.
I have done the following as far as troubleshooting:
I tied the turn on lead to always hot, to see if I was losing turn on voltage. No dice.
I installed a analog voltmeter at the power block in the back of the jeep where the amp, sub, and line converter tie in, and it drops to 8 volts during startup. I figured that I need to install a capacitor there to maintain voltage during startup.
Installed the Cap, and no change.
I know that during engine startup, there will be a voltage drop, but 8 volts is pretty high. Perhaps my ground isn't as good as I initially thought? I guess that's my next change, but frankly, this has me quite exasperated. Anyone have any thoughts?
