Default ej20g alter problem?

Driving home today and the cd player started flickering. I have had this problem with other cars, so i cut off the headlights and coasted to the nearest aprking lot before the car died. Im guessing its the Alternator or a possible short. I recently rewired my cd player, but i think its just coincidence. I need some suggestions on what to check, and what part i can replace my ej20g alternator with..... any help is appreciated.

Most early Subaru alternators are the same. I just replaced my '93 Legacy Turbo alternator with an EJ20G one. Exact same part number. So go to the parts counter and ask for a '93 Legacy alternator.
