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.
1 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.

This cap was easy to hook up and works great for me. Never had a problem with it. Gets the job done. Be careful not to lose the bulb that chargers the cap when you first use it!

Works well

August 8, 2012

I've had this cap hooked up for a while now to a mono kicker 750, does what its supposed to. Pretty cheap, keeps the lights from dimming and has a fancy digital readout on it. Only problem I have with it is the terminals are huge, its pretty difficult to find end connectors for your wires that fit over them. I had to buy the biggest ones I could find and drill them out.

great product , works till stolen

February 29, 2012

I would recommend this raptor 1 farad cap to alot of people lookin for a good, yet not too spendy capacitor. I think it was a good buy! Worked great, good voltage stabilizer for a 300-500 watts RMS system, and cool led volt meter on it. Shipped on time, got here in new condition. Added more power to my amp 14.4 volts, was bumpin hard on my 12" mtx's subs. Someone thought... "Hey, I like that system lets take it". Some people cant get their own the right way. So beware of theft!

Good Price but...

September 28, 2011

I had this capacitor sitting in its packaging for a few months and finally had it installed by an audio shop. It did definitely raise the power in the 12 inch I had running it to but did not take care of the dimming lights. I have one 400 watt amp and running a slim sony 12 inch enclosed sub. But for the price, it is not a bad buy.

Best price for what you get

September 25, 2011

I've had it for about six months now and I've been nothing but happy with it. Love the light up display, the only negative thing I could find about it is that bolts used to hold down your ring terminals for the 12v and ground. You need an allen wrench or keys to tighten it but its such a minor detail and you can change it if you really want to anyways. Overall awesome and I recommend it to anyone wanting to save their battery.

August 25, 2011

I had problems with Kenwood KAC-8105D (1000w Max) Amp overheating and every light inside and outside dimming. After installing the Raptor C1.0FM lights inside car no longer dim and headlights will only dim during prolonged deep bass. Overheating takes longer to happen (due to limited trunk space). Great Price. Haven't had any trouble with capacitor itself. Digital meter is accurate and looks great!

Pros: I ordered this to stop my lights from dimming, it helped a little but most of the improvement came from the clarity of the bass!!!
Cons: don't screw the brackets down to tight or they will break and it's pretty hard to find replacements

Raptor Cap

June 24, 2011

I'm currently running 480 watt amp, with a 800 watt Kicker comp sub, my lights were dimming whenever my bass hits. I was skeptical about caps at first but it was wrong to. If you don't have a strong enough alternator this won't do anything for you. Upgrade your battery and your alternator before this. It only charges as fast as you alternator will let you. With that begin said I love this thing. You really don't realize just how much bass your amp isn't pushing till you make up for it with one of these.

Helps a little

April 28, 2011

This product does reduce headlight dimming at night. As far as a bass hit goes, it will give you about three seconds of strong bass before it discharges. Ultimately if you are looking for stronger bass, you need to upgrade your car's power (alternator, batteries). If you are looking for a buffer to reduce the bass strikes to prevent mild to moderate headlight dimming this product will suffice.

Well worth the money

April 17, 2011

I ordered this online because my subwoofer would hit so hard, all my lights would dim and this completely took care of the problem. I also had alternator feedback and this took care of that as well. This is well worth the money and exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend this product. Plus it came in three days which was nice. Keep it up sonicelectronix.
