    I have a 2003 Chevy Impala and I had a stereo in it before but it was only a 120 watt stereo so I replaced it with a 200 watt stereo. I wired it all and it turns on and there’s no sound. I tried using my old stereo in it but now that doesn’t have sound either. I do have a stock amp and I wired the ground from the harness to the stereo. Ideas?

    So I’ve had these subs, 2 12” Audio Teknique 500RMS suns hooked up to a 700 RMS amp in my car. Everything from the alternator to the battery is completely stock. The only thing that isn’t is the radio. My headlights dim if I listen to slightly loud bass heavy music and I know of course that it’s because the amp needs more power, but I don’t wanna spend too much if I don’t have to. What would be the cheapest and easiest way to stop the dimming besides obviously just lowering the volume?

  • How would you convert dB to watt?

    Best answer: dB would be the actual amount of noise the speakers are putting out, no formula I’m aware of to convert it to watt output.

Now when I turn the volume up to a certain level, around 25, the sound stops working, no hum, nothing. All of the functions on the stereo still work just no sound. If I unplug the wiring harness and plug it back in, it begins to work again until I turn the volume up to loud. Any ideas on how to fix this problem?
