Charging issues 2005 mustang

I am experiencing problems with battery not getting charged on short rides when I play my sub which is 1000 watt max. Basically what happens is I drive 5-10 minutes and upon trying to restart my car after playing my music kind of loud :smilie my cars battery seems to always be dead. I recently put on a new 200 amp alternator because my original one went out, my only guess is that it is my wiring from my alternator to my battery which is stock needs to be upgraded. Any thoughts?

Have Autozone check the battery. It may be on its last legs, especially if it's the original unit that came from the factory.

It may need recharging, especially if you either do not drive the car frequently or most of your driving involves short trips.
Also, recommend turning off the stereo before turning off the engine.

I recharged it twice, it does fine when I don't play my sub, so I was told by someone to replace my ground I might try that.
