i've purchased and am about to install my 4000 w 2ch amp
with 2 15" subs At 2000 w peak, but i'm only installing one sub for now.
i'm going to use a line output converter and tap into the front door speaker, and add a volume control.
do i need to worry about dimming lights or any other unwanted issues with my setup...?

Ummm... Audiobahn, right? If so, the answer to your question is "Yes."
Suggestion - return all of that stuff, and buy some real equipment, maybe not as "high powered" as those outlandish claims, but respectable and real power for about the same money. Audiobahn is garbage, and you will not hear many (if ANY) people disagreeing with that statement here on this forum...
I would look into an HO alternator, and upgrade all of the power cables under your hood.
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

Sounds more like MA Audio crap to me or some other flea market variety. Then again could it be some uber high end gear?

If the amp really does put out 4000 watts, you will need to be thinking about alternator upgrades and an additional battery or batteries.  Most of the amplifiers that I know of that ratings like that won't come close to actually doing it.  I'm not saying that there aren't amps that will, but just not very many.

Sorry, I meant an alternator upgrade.  Also, If you are talking about the previously mentioned brands: Lanzar, Pyle, MA, Audiobahn, etc.  They probably won't do anything near what they say they will.

If it were the "uber high gear" he would not have posted, and he would have mentioned RMS watts. not peak, take the MA or audiobahn/pipe crapola out of your mind, and get some real RMS watts. even somehting like 400-600RMS will probably be clearer and more powerful than a 1134690346 watt audiobahn amp and subs.
