Could be many things.

Vacuum surge, fuel surge, electical surge, etc. Hondas are know to have random vacuum surges because the early years had too much vacuum control. Has the problem come back? Was your system on and hitting heavy when this happened?

One thing I would do is replicate what song and volume level you had on the day it happened. Then take a voltage meter and check the battery to see how much your system is taking out. If the system drops dramatically then I would definitely suggest buying a 1 farad audio capacitor so the juice is taken from the cap and not the battery directly.

If the battery still holds up, I would then start checking all that was stated above one by one.....sometimes doing that will help you find issues that you never would of seen unless you were lookin for a problem....like you are now. Just because a problem is intermittent doesn't always mean it won't replicate itself at another time.
