Headlights? Dashboard lights? If you have a Advanced Auto Parts store or AutoZone store near by they can do a check on your alternator to see if its putting out enough to keep up with the demand of your system.

Mostly the headlights usually when I am at stop lights at idle the headlights dim but the dashboard I haven't notice any dim

Is it only when the Bose is on? What happens when you turn on the heater or A/ C? Something,? If so, get the alternator and battery checked.

With the ac on or off it still dims. I do listen to dubstep a lot and I usually keep it up but maybe your right it could be the alternator not really sure cause it didn't dim before and just started dimming last Friday but though maybe it would fix itself but it hasn't

Yeah, it's not going to fix itself. Like I said, AutoZone, Advanced Auto Parts or anyplace that offers a free battery or alternator check can give you the answer.
