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 5 Farad Digital Capacitor is perfect for systems up to 2500 watts. It features an automatic and manual selectable blue digital LED volt meter with a silver brushed anodized aluminum heatsink. This capacitor is equipped with six 1/0 AWG nickel-plated high current terminal blocks with 4 gauge reducers. The HCAP-5 will increase the peak power of your amplifier, reduce headlight dimming, and increase the overall output of your vehicles sound system.

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.
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.
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.
4 AWG

Nice cap, really like the shape instead of the round type. Easier for my mounting. Easy to read and removable wire ferrels to ease hook up.

This cap has syling to match my JL Audio HD 900/5. Even at max volume level the amp never starves for power. Playing songs with a lot of bass notes, the lights on my car have never dimmed. The digital readout on top of the cap is also a nice feature to let me know that there is no problems with the voltage. I highly recommend this product.

This product is well designed and very easy to use. It features a digital blue volt meter that can be turned off. Nice feature since the bling and rediculous lighting of some capacitors are nice advertising for thieves. The triple 4ga/0ga inputs and outputs are handy and will accomodate both gauges with the use of a spacer. All of which are neatly concealed by a trim panel. I am very pleased with the quality and fit and finish of this capacitor. I have owned SPL and tsunami caps in the past, tsunami is right up there with stinger and streetwires in my opinion, the only thing it is not up on is the price.
