Default Audio woes

So i ripped out the bose system amp and speakers... I replaced fronts with 6.5s comps and 5.25 in the back and a fosgate 300x4...........The rear speakers i just ran leads from the speaker to the amp the front i tapped into the harness that went into the bose amp..
Now when the car is not running everything plays no issues whats so ever, when the car is running the speakers pop and cut out randomly.

i also have a post trying to figure out whats up with the charging system as well.. But the charging system issue came up when i installed all this stuff as well it didnt happen before. I actually un hooked everything to rule it out.. radio was unhooked, the power and grounds going to the amps and the front speakers were d/ced and still had the charging issue. Is possible what ever is going on with the charging system is causing issues with the audio play back as well?

this is the other thread if you want more back story and troubleshooting i have done

I used to have these problems until i quit being a cheap *** and started buying the amp wiring kit. It comes with everything you need, shielded cables, ground wires, fuses etc etc.

This one is rated for 1,000 watts, but I got a 600W kit for about $100:

The 4 rib belt trying the accessories side on my sec drive kit was slipping causing issues.

A slipping belt caused all the audio issues too?

It was causing the alternator to vary its output and surge probably.
