    Subwoofer freezes CarPC

    So I recently installed a new amp and subwoofer in my setup. Now when I try to turn the gain up on my sub any hard bass hits freeze the PC. I was hoping for some insight that any one else with this problem has. My first thought is that the PC is being undervolted and freezing because of this. So I was going to try a capacitor and see if that helps the issue at all. I know its an electrical issue as I have moved the PC away from any vibration.

    sounds like power starvation to me.

    put a voltmeter on the + line to the PC and see what is happening when the sub hits hard.

    Now I'm pretty stumped. Just tried it again, voltage never drops below 13v, and the PC never froze even with the sub gain being much higher than the previous limit.
