Amp and subs to factory WK radio

I installed a 1000 watt amp and two 12'' subs in my 2005 GC using a sosche radio adapter that splices into the factory radio header wires. A few months later, my electronics in the jeep started shorting out. Could the adapter be causing the problem? I want to put the subs and amp in my 2006 GC, but if the adapter is causing the problem, I'd like to know before hand so I can go buy an aftermarket header unit. Thanks!

Re: Amp and subs to factory WK radio

I will readily admit I am not an expert, but to me it sounds like you don't have a capacitor, and your running a pretty big system. This could be wearing out your alternator and messing with your battery. Again, no expert, but I wouldn't think an LOC would do too much to any other systems, but your alternator and battery of course could. Another possibility is that it's completely unrelated, you could have a contaminated fuse box causing your problems.
