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.
10 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.
Any Gauge with use of Ring Terminal 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.
Any Gauge with use of Ring Terminal 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.

Not the greatest

July 5, 2012

I have a 130 amp alternator, 2x 120ah batteries and 0 gauge all over and bought 2 of these 10 farad caps. Lights still dim slightly with the 400 amp drain of my car stereo. Voltages instantly drop down to 11.0v on hard hitting notes, in reality I dont think they make much of a difference, but they are shiney and look good.

Want something to make your system say "WOW"!

December 14, 2010

I have over 20 plus years installing audio systems and I must say it is about time someone came out with a product that really makes a difference. I'm running over 2000 watts RMS at 1/2 ohms and not once has my lights dimmed or my car ever not want to start. I would say even on a small system you can't beat it for the money and quality.

Worth the Price

December 12, 2010

I bought this capacitor expecting very little since Boss and Planet Audio are not exactly well-rated brands, but sinc ei have installed the capacitor to my system, my lights don't dim and the voltmeter shows my 2000W amp is draining it, like its supposed to. Works well. For only $60, why spend $200 on a Fosgate??
