Aftermarket radio turns off when accelerating

I installed an aftermarket radio last week. I've wired other radios in older cars of mine and havent had any issues. The problem with this one is that I had to splice the stock harness to wire in the new one. When I was trying to figure out which were the front and rear speakers there was a spark and I blew a fuse or two which I have already replaced.

The problem I am having is when I accelerate the radio turns off and will come back on later. I only have this problem when it is in gear, I reved the engine when in park and the radio was fine. From searching the forum I found that it could be bad coils or alternator but I installed new coils earlier today and my alternator is putting out about 14.8V.

I'm going to look through my fuses and see if anything else blew but after that I don't know where to go. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
