Your voltage is dropping to much from not having enough alternator and when that happens it will do what you described.

500 watts should be fine on a stock alt, prob got a loose wire somewhere. recheck your wiring.

possibly, depending on how old your battery is it may need to be replaced right now. I was running 1000 watts in my old car fine, no problems. also big 3 wouldn't do much considering you aren't running a H/O alt.
