Tsunami LITEWAVE Series Capacitor

Car audio capacitors are used to store energy for the amplifier to draw on demand and help you get the most from your vehicle's electrical system. High power amplifiers draw large amounts of current from your vehicle's battery putting a heavy burden on your alternator. Capacitors will take the strain off of your vehicles alternator thus giving a longer life span.

The Tsunami Hybrid High Performance 40 Farad Digital Capacitor is perfect for systems up to 20,000 watts. It features a blue digital DC voltage and amperage display with a silver brushed anodized aluminum heatsink. This capacitor is equipped with a built-in distribution block with 0/4 AWG inputs and 4/8 AWG outputs. The HCAP-40 will increase the peak power of your amplifier, reduce headlight dimming, and increase the overall output of your vehicles sound system.

  • Authorized Internet Dealer
  • 1-year Manufacturer's warranty

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.
40 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.
1/0 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.
1/0 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.
Yes
Primary Color

Great Buy

This product gets the job done, no dimming your lights at high bass notes. I would definitely recommend this to a friend ...only con I have is the price; could probably get nearly the same results with a cheaper battery, but if you got the cash get the hcap40

Powerful but large design

October 21, 2012

I really liked the fact that I can feed multiple amps with this CAP, but the plastic trip at the edges of the unit are decorative and rather large, and get in the way of being able to hide this unit the way I would have liked to. It also did not come with an installation manual. But overall, it keeps my amps happy and clean sounding.
