Excellent Product

I have one in my setup.. With a Hifonics Brutus 1610D Mono Amp pushin 2 Cerwin Vega 12" Vmax124 subs. This capacitor works excellent. Digital readout, Easy to charge with included resistor, Looks great and now My truck headlight don't dim at all when my Truck is poundin. I would recommend this to everyone!1... A great product.

VS
Sucked

All it did was suck massive amounts of power away from my system. It actually did MORE harm than good.

I Got thins capacitor in hopes to solve an inevitable need for a second battery and so far it has been holding up well, but i still need the 2nd battery to max my system efficiency. but the blue LED's look great and its holding up well; cant wait to see how it all works with the 2nd battery! Thanks to Power Acoustik for another good product, im a huge fan of their products, and thanks to Sonic for great prices, services and super fast shipping as always!

The first cap went out in 6 months, blew the fuse. I put in another fuse and it instantly popped, the cap is dead. I bought another one and about 7 months later it did exatcly the same as the first. I did not want to wait so I went locally and bought a 1 Farad for twice the money. Substantially heavier and cleaner power. The lights do not dim.

The price for this unit was great, but the performance was not good.... I have a 4000 watt digital amp and this cap should be able to handle it without a problem BUT it is not that good..... i would only use this for 2000 watt max.

i've had it for half a year. Wat it is made of seems cheap.. but ive given mine hell and it still works. The digital read out is cool but it stopped workin then started back again. The board that the read out broke is dangling inside of it and its still given a read out. I'd say they hold up. Voltage gauge does move much. Got 1500 hifonics an 2 twelves... i'd say buy it. 5 farad good price and holds up

I've installed in my trunk this capacitor PA 4 months ago, which are hooked to my two kicker Amplifiers ( 08ZX350.4 = Stereo and 08ZX850.2 = MONO ) about 1400 Watts peak, this PA works like a Champ!, really excellent, no Dimming my headlights, plenty of power for my music, automatically on - off with the HU, and looks pretty cool, I'm very happy with this..Highly Recommended if you don't want to drain your battery and you have two amplifiers.

This cap is awesome. I have 1000 watts running throughout my system and when I really have it bumping, this cap eliminates the dimming in my headlights. Some caps ratings are inflated, but with this one you get true blue 5 farads.
