I noticed when I disable the Sub-Woofer in the boot, the cars 'lag' seems to disappear somewhat. Not totally but enough to feel the differance. Could the Woofer be causing a power drian on the battery and could this cause loss of performance throughout the car - not just electrics??

Thanks!

Well with subwoofers blaring at full volume draws alot of electricty, especially for high amperage systems, your stock alternator can handle a small system not a large system. So when youre running a large system, you car will tend to lose power while its blaring all the way. Because its making the alternator work harder, then the engine has to work harder to move that alternator.
