once in a while I get a check power steering assist light that comes on in dash when it does right after usually steering gets hard like manual.

I end up having to shut off car and restart and it usually comes back around I don't know what the cause is I had a clogged leaky power steering filter I took off a few months back clamped everything off have not had fluid down yet. So I don't think it is leaking anymore.

Wonder if the alternator is going out maybe I run a stereo system door speakers and subs amped maybe 450 watts at most of real power in the subs door speakers are amped aswell maybe 60 watts going to all four.

Any one have this problem or come across it before. It almost seems like right when I start the car and I go to take off the light comes on the the steering gets stiff usually after leaving from a store ill stop put it in park and shut off and restart

It might help to know what model your car is, and what year, since you didn't post in a specific forum.
