ok so i've been driving my car around for awhile(3 years), and ever since i've first put my system in(1 year), i also put a volt meter thing to measure how many volts i'm receiving. i realized that ever since before i installed my stuff, my car would always put out 12 volts, even when i drove on the free way. anyways, now and then when i start my car, it will show 14 volts, but as i start turning the volume up or starting to shift, it eventually hovers back down to 12 volts.

glass, do you think i have a voltage regulator problem???

your RPMs drop when you shift gears, and that decreases the alternator output
totally normal
