Capacitor Specifications

Capacitance (farads)
Capacitors are rated in farads, and at times microfarads or millionths of a farad. The more farads the capacitor is rated at, the more electrical charge (and wattage) the capacitor will hold. Capacitance is defined as the property of storing an electrical charge between two separate conductors.
30 farads
LCD Meter Display
Displays the current voltage and/or other specification on an LCD readout.
Yes
Maximum Input Gauge Size
This is the largest gauge wire that will fit into the power and ground terminals of this device. The lower the gauge number, the thicker the wire is. For example, a 4 gauge wire is thicker than an 8 gauge wire and thus has higher current carrying capacity. Always do your best to get this size wire to reduce the risk of damage to your components.
4 AWG
Maximum Output Gauge Size
This number refers to the maximum size of wire that will fit into the output connector(s) of the capacitor, battery terminal, or any other connector with an wire output.
4 AWG
Built-In Distribution Block
A built-in distribution block simply means that the item includes a distribution block. The built-in distribution block will split the single power input into a multiple power output.

Power Acoustik 30 Farad Cap

December 15, 2009

I would say well worth the money, I ordered one of these a couple of months ago and it has helped allot. Its great for comps were you burp your subs, holds that little bit of extra power and it pushes it out fast peaking the overall watts and boosting spl by just enough to win. Its also great for helping out with dimming head lights when your bumpin down the road at night. Only negative thing I can say about it is that is not a true 30 farad but by looking at the price you can tell that. Again, a good value buy.

Garbage

April 19, 2010

sorry to choke on peoples ideas about capacitors and to sonic electronix you guys have great products and great prices and i am sorry to realize that you sell this product, i bought this with the anticipation of a much better electrical system. well first of all when hooking it up (instructions were easy very nice, everything included, the case is cool), the positive input terminal was loose and could not hold a charge while my 2 15's were pounding because it would further rattle the positive input terminal making a loose connection which resulted in it shutting off. second of all, from the day i got it when i would turn it upside down i could hear parts falling inside of it which made me think about whether or not it is in fact a good product. because of the loose connection, i ended up taking out the capacitor, and to my surprise, my electrical got better? i was getting higher voltage readings without the capacitor.. overall, i think that capacitors in general aren't really worth the money because getting main sources of power (ie batteries and alternators) is a much better choice than getting added "fake" power.. but if you are to go with a capacitor (which i never will again), get something of a good name, I hear rockfords capacitors live up to the expectations also tsunami and stinger..

I recently bought this cap and it works great. i have 2 12" re audio sxx d2 and a 3000.1 re audio amp. before my lights would dim and nearly shut my car off it would seem. Since adding this cap my lights hardly dim and my system sounds amazing. Not to mention the chrome and blue leds looks great in my trunk

Awesome piece of equipment--great value

August 2, 2010

I had a tsunami 1.2 farad capacitor in my car for about a year, running both a 2400 watt and a 1000 watt amplifier. I could never turn the volume up past 1/4 of the way without the deck shorting out and turning back on. I recently purchased this 30 farad cap to handle all that power a little better, and the difference is amazing! I can turn the volume up to the point where it's ridiculous and then some without shutting down the system. I would recommend this to anyone who has a powerful system that wants stability of voltage and sound, not to mention the awesome blue LED's that light up.

July 16, 2014

I didn't Like the fact that the case is all plastic but other than that this a high quality Hybrid Capacitor for the price. The lights are a nice soft blue and not overly bright.

I have a blue theme in my car, Alpine amp for highs with blue light, HiFonics amp with blue HF logo, and this, and mannnnn with this right in the middle it lights my entire car. I have it located on the back of my seats with them folded down and have no need to add any other lights to the interior. It performs as it should, very pleased.

I purchased 2 of these capacitors to run with my Hifonics XXV-Sampson Amplifier and they did a much better job than i imagined. They are no match to multiple batteries but they do have nice features. The LED Voltage readout is clear and easy to read and features a built in alarm when voltage drops to low. Only negative thing i have to say is that the casing is made out of plastic.

I now own 2 of these caps. Along with a yellow top gel cell battery up front my lights hardly dim nowadays. Let alone the battery light come on. I would suggest this cap for its ease of installation and performance. Can't go wrong paying less than a bill for it.
