Default Lights dimming!

Hello everyone. I have a 2004 pt cruiser convertible touring edition. I installed a pioneer premier head unit and a alpine pdx.v60 amp. I have done the big 3 upgrade as well as replaced the battery with an odyssey battery. I also have a tsunami 10 farad hybrid cap installed. Every time the bass line kicks in my headlamps and interior lights dim to the beat of the music! I am guessing it time to invest in a high output alternator, but which one? I am so confused!

First off. Good job on the big 3.

Now, ditch the capacitor, they are useless in 95% of vehicles. Get a second battery for the rear, it will help a lot with the dimming and such.

First off, how in the world do I wire a second battery? Secondly, my "trunk" is full!! 12" sub and amp and cap = no room ! If I would do a h/o alternator, what brand do I get?
