Allow the battery to charge? Im sure with testing and sitting in the car adjusting bass and admiring your mirror shaking has drained it a bit

Upgrade the ground again, make sure they are the same gauge as your power for the amp and go from battery to the chassis and then to the engine.

Try adding a 2 farad Capacitor, this should...... minimize the flickering but prolly wont do much for dimming.

or

Put in rear second battery with a high discharge output and set up a dual battery charging battery circuit and strickly run the amps off that.

Source a larger output Alternator.

your stereo is flogging all the resources of grunt.. of course the lights will flicker!
