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.
1.5 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 does the job and I know that they say 1 farad for every 1,000 watts but I find that to be inaccurate. When we drop bass notes they hold for at least 2 meaty seconds. The cap drains quick and the fluctuations on the voltage LED display should not vary from 13.8 down to 12.7 on a bass note. Caps work but not for people dropping real bass. I say 5 farads for every 1,000 watts of bass and there will be less fluctuation on voltage to the amp. If you listen to rock then this would do you just fine. If you're dripping trap, bass CD's or dubstep you will need a lot more than this cap. Overall it does what it's supposed to. When is comes to power always have more than needed more the application.

Gets the job done

July 10, 2013

my lights would dim on a one amp system. Now with this cap I'm running a 2 amp system with no problems. It stores plenty of power, I can pump the tunes, crank the AC and shoot the high beams and it's like my battery is brand new. Great price but it looses points on look, the skull and flames design isn't very classy looking and doesn't look right in a car with no decals.

decent price

December 23, 2012

I got this to try because I was gonna run a dual amp set up and wanted to relieve some of the stress on the electrical system. I decided to run a single 5 channel instead so I never used it and Sonic was very allowing on returning it. it was however a very good price and somewhat visually appealing so no cons.

Does a great job for the $.

September 24, 2012

I would recommend this capacitor to someone in need of one. However it is extremely important to ensure you get the proper farad rating for your application. Not doing so will result in poor performance and unsatisfactory results.

Great product

August 22, 2012

I have had no problems at all with this, the instructions told me step by step what to do and it works great. No problems, it doesn't run down the battery at all and keeps my amp and subs pumping out that music. Will definitely recommend this to anyone looking for that extra boost of power for there system.

great capacitor

July 8, 2012

I am using this for my 1200 watt amp (600 watts rms) and i have no headlight or interior light dimming what so ever,and i am still using my 10 year old stock alternator. but i also have the big three uprage with 4 gauge wire and brand new battery so that halps a lot too. I would definitely recommend this capacitor to anyone who doesn't want to spend their bank on a capacitor. great product, works as advertised, and looks cool too! and it can be mounted upside down, side ways, anyway you want to install it. mines upside down and no problems what so ever.

Quit Working.

June 22, 2012

I wrote a good review earlyer on this product but now I have changed my mind after only a few months use. I have been using it for a few months then the meter would turn off and on, then kept reading really low voltages with NO music playing.

Take caution.

June 18, 2012

I would not recommend this product at all. I had everything hooked up correctly and the SOB starts to pour out smoke. After that you had to hit it with a hammer to get it to work. Waste of money. Get a Kicker. Strong, durable, and won't fry.
