i have an 04 deville dts. bose radio with cd/tape. every once in a while the radio goes to full blast instantly. than it will go back to normal. it seems to do it most when im sitting at lights or idling somewhere. also i have 2 12'' alpines hooked up to a 750 mono amp. but i dont think this has anything to do with it because the regular speakers get loud too and there not amplified. any ideas?

Fisplay the voltage on your DIC and see iif there are dips when the sound system issues occur. Your amp may be sucking power at idle.

turn off the auto volume control on your radio...
it detects the booming bass and assumes its road noise so it cranks up the radio
