Good Evening Club Lexus members, I've got a problem with my 1998 lexus gs300 nakamichi sound system.. The Head unit for the last month has been fading in and out (by that i mean it would randomly shut off and then start back up again) along with the speakers shutting off and then back up at the same time. Sometimes after an hour or more of driving the speakers would begin to pop and there would be a static noise in the background. Could someone tell me why this is? I think my battery is going bad could that be why? Also an important note i think the problem with the head unit shutting down is related to the volume at which the radio is being played, the consistency of how often the radio shuts down is much higher when listening to music for a few mins.
Thanks for any help in advance.
Here are two pictures of my head unit sorry for the night shots but i just took them. I think the Screen is also going bad, its been like that for the last year.

Well, I'm getting a new alternator, new starter, and maybe a new battery. Due to some other problems, if the problem consists (which it probably will ) gonna get a new headunit (radio) would prefer as little touch screen as possible and bluetooth and the ability to match the colors to the other lights in the car would be a huge plus. Would be greatly appreciated if some one could reccomend a headunit for me.
Still, even if your stock and deck needs replacing, there enough stock units available here and on ebay for cheap - quick easy swap if you do not want to upgrade for other reasons (sound quality. newer tech etc.)
Okay replaced the battery, car stars good now. Nothing wrong with ac or anything like that anymore. Have been looking around on amazon for a aftermarket radio, the Kenwood DDX-371 2-Din Multimedia DVD Receiver has caught my eye. I want to go ahead and replace the amp too, but I want to know the specs on the nakamichi amp that came with my car so that I could find the right aftermarket amp. Anyone mind helping me out? I need to know the number of channels, aND the wattage I should get.
