sound system problems

I just got 2 1100 watt 12" Audiobahn subs and an Audiobahn 8000T amp from my local Circuit City. They had free install so I took it.... big mistake. I've gone there about 4 times now and they dont know what the hell they are doing. Anyway, its installed and works now, but I am having some wierd issues. There is a really inconsistent feedback problem and also the bass cuts out sometimes when listening to the radio. Sometimes it will go on for two days and sometimes it will be okay for a week. Occassionally when I close the trunk, slam a door, etc the subs will make a rediculasly loud noise, like the loudest bass you've ever heard but stops as soon as I turn on the radio on. FYI: they replaced the amp once, but a few weeks after it returned so I dont think its another bad amp.

That's the first issue.

The second, and more annoying issue is my right headlight. I'm assuming its caused by my system, but I have no real way of telling.... the car is only a few weeks old to me and the system went in a few days after I got the car. Basically every once and a while, usually after my headlights are on for a bit, the right one just goes out and the indicator above the steering wheel shows a red light. Its always the right (never left) and my best guess is because the battery is drained. People have said to get a capacitor or second battery but I figured I would consult the experts first incase its an underlying problem. After some driving for a little longer or turning off the car for some time it will go back on again.

Thanks for the help.
