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.
No
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

Great cap for the value.

April 21, 2014

This is a good cap for the price. If you bundle with amp it is crazy cheap and well worth the original price if not more. I would like it to have a volt meter on it but I purchased a separate meter that does the job. The meter wouldn't be practical on the cap in my install anyways. I have it mounted under the seat and I can't monitor it . So far no problems with it at all.

It was not long ago a cap like this was $150. $28 is more than a bargain. It really helps to understand what this cap will do for you. Don't expect it to stop lights dimming with a 1kw amp. There's three situations this item is a must buy. 1. You have a car system that you added a sub and 300-500w amp. You listen at levels that have strong bass, not so much it's heard outside the car. It is enough to dim lights some on bass hits. The cap will take the initial hit so it's not so hard on the car's alternator. 2. If you use a CB amp up to 1000w it helps the same way and also acts as a filter of sorts often eliminating noise and squeal tendencies. 3. When using a DC switching supply in the house, this cap will usually eliminate the voltage stutter. A switching supply can freak out when a sudden or extended draw is demanded. You have to cut it off and back on or cut off everything running on it. Again, cap acts as a filter of sorts. Understanding what a cap can and can't do will make for way more satisfaction.

need more power

January 21, 2014

im pushing 1200 max watt with my system but there are times that my car seems like at is about to die when the bass drops (depending on the song being played). It may be sufficient for systems with a smaller load but i think i need a bigger cap.
