My guess is it is the AC circuit. The lights will dim if the sub starts to hit hard like watching WotW and decent volume. My room needs to be re-wired but at the moment I can not afford to rip the whole room apart and have new AC service installed. When I am ready though, I am going to have a 240V line run just for the sub and maybe another 4 dedicated 30 amp circuits. I also want to get a P5 and P2 next year so the rewire would assist with that. And to do all this, I need a new panel or sub panel and a new line from the pole. Only have a 100 amp service here.
