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 10 Farad Digital Capacitor is perfect for systems up to 5000 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, 3 positive and 3 negative. The HCAP-10 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.
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.
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.

Best performance for the price

December 1, 2011

Incredible improvement over a former "brandname" 2 Farad cap. No more lights dimming or low voltage problems w/ amps. It's almost like having a separate power supply just for my stereo. Design of unit makes for a very clean install look and is very well built.

This is a very nice cap and is built very good. One of my concerns were if it felt cheap and it does not. It is heavy not light and made of metal.

Exactly what was missing!

March 7, 2011

My amp (MTX Jackhammer 2400W) was taking a toll on my car battery, etc. With two 15" RF P3s the dmming and power shut off on the amp were going off quite regularly. This cap did the job and more-since the install-bever once have I had a problem (knock on wood) and the dial for the volts comes in handy as well. Definitely recommend for those who need a boost, but don't want the hassle of an added battery. Hope that helps

Store that extra juice!

February 3, 2011

I bought this capacitor from Sonic a few months back. It has worked very well and seemed to limit the voltage drop at the amplifier. Having a good deep cycle or AGM battery up front will certainly help for systems with over 800 continuous watts. When using amps this large, the Tsunami cap will give you extra headroom to make sure distortion is at a minimum at louder listening levels. Of course the proper gauge wiring should be used, along with the correct amperage ANL (slow blowing) fuse. This cap's terminals are very solid and made well... it serves as a distribution block also having 3 pos. & 3 neg. allen-head terminals. I have my Tsumani 10 farad cap running with my Fosgate T1500-1bdCp amp... Go ahead and click the add to cart button and order safely from Sonic, then feel assured that you are installing a quality piece of equipment when it arrives ; )

as advertised...

June 8, 2012

This cap works well... the owners manual could be more helpful in explaining installation. There are covers that flip back on the sides that reveal the screw holes. There's a button to turn on the display. I love that the terminals are the perfect size for 0/1 guage or leave the sleave in and its perfect for 4 gauge. It is also very nice looking mounted next to my hifonics BRZ 2100. They match.

High farad cap that is also a distro block. Has inserts in the distro block for 4 gauge wire that can be taken out for larger gauge wire. Very low profile and great mounting which hides the screws.

Tsunami HCAP - 10

June 2, 2011

I've had this capacitor for six months and I've had it wired two 3 different systems in the time I've owned it. I also haven't any problems or issues with it. It takes some time to charge correctly but no worse than most other caps. It greatly reduces the annoying headlight dimming when I'm running my BRUTUS at 1 ohm and 2400 W RMS feeding two 15's, It ALMOST COMPLETELY stops the headlight dimming when I'm running my amp at 2 ohms and 1700 W RMS feeding two PIONEER Champ series 10's. Every time I install a new system I sell my old stuff on line, I've sold two nice systems in the past few months but I always keep my TSUNAMI cap. This cap has been the best cap I've owned since getting into car audio. Sure, there are probably better caps out there, but you can't find one of this quality for this price. TSUNAMI is also a well known name, you wont be disappointed with this cap.
