Default Whats Wrong With My Car?? (1995 Honda Prelude)?

My 95 prelude My lights dim when I push on the throttle I'll be listening to music and the voice cuts out sometimes and only the subwoofer works.. I turned the car off and now it won't crank.. I unplugged the amplifier and jumped my car off.. Turned off car Wouldn't crank again Plugged the amp back in and jumped it off once more.. The car will stay running but won't crank. The remote wire to the head unit stereo was wired to the constant I believe Idk its all been a headache this past week.. I just need some advice My alternator is charging the 200$ optimum battery just fine What's wrong with the stereo and music problem and amp? And what's wrong with my car not cranking? It won't even turn over

"My alternator is charging the 200$ optimum battery just fine "

afraid not, and that optima battery isnt all that. the remote is also not supposed to be direct wired, and your alternator may be to small for the demand, now start diagnosing.

Try this: take off the Neg. terminal, put a lite tester on the battery post and cable. If it lites up, you have a short draining the battery. Leave it on and start pulling fuses one by one. If the lite goes off, you know where to start looking.
