It’s a fact: your car’s electrical system can’t provide the maximum power your amps need. When your amp isn’t getting enough power you’ll know—dimming headlights, wimpy bass and distorted sound. Featuring advanced Monster® technologies including machine-etched foil and supercharged 18 volt electrolyte fluid, Monster DigiCap® can quickly release stored electricity to help supply power when your amp needs it most. And with Monster’s digital voltage meter you’ll always know how much power you have or need.
  • For use in systems up to 1000 watts peak power.
  • DigiCap® top shows accurate readout of available system voltage.
  • Reverse polarity buzzer and auto disconnect to protect the Capacitor.
  • Helps prevent amp clipping on peak or loud music transients.
  • 20 VDC rating with low internal resistance for increased, instant power transfer.
  • 22 Volt peak rating for maximum power handling
  • 5 millisecond charge/discharge cycle provides ultra-fast response time for peak performance.
  • 1-year Manufacturer's Warranty

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.

Don't waste our money!

August 6, 2011

I admit it's a nice looking cap and it worked great for about 4 months. Then I came out from work on a pretty hot afternoon (95F), opened up the truck and got the strongest smell of Ammonia coming from inside. I looked around to see what could be causing this and there was the cap smoking. Just a little bit of smoke drifting up from the Negative Post. AND... So much condensation inside the display that you couldn't see it. The cap was very hot, much hotter than anything else in my truck. It had been working fine up until this event. Now I have my old 500K Farad cap in and it seems to be working fine. Took 3 days to get the Ammonia smell out of my truck. I can't find my receipt. I hope Monster is understanding.

Great Capacitor!

April 6, 2010

This Capacitor definitely helped with the dimming lights in my car and my subs don't fade out when they hit DEEP bass notes. Sonic Electronix is an amazing company and they help you with any problems that you have. I would definitely recommend this capacitor

Sick Loooking

December 11, 2009

I bought this capacitor thinking that it would make my subs hit harder and louder. I was wrong. But nevertheless, this capacitor looks awesome between my two 12" subs. No issues setting up. Same thing happened to me as mentioned above but this is not a big deal.

Nice Capacitor

November 30, 2009

I bought this capacitor to help with my subwoofer fading and loosing some bass. It does its job and I haven't had any issues with my system since I installed it. The only problem I had was charging the cap with the provided charging wire. The instructions say to leave it on until it gets to 12 volts, it never reached 12 volts, only 9 volts - not sure what the problem was there. But once I hooked it up to the car the display showed 13 - 14 volts and I tested it with a mutimeter so I know the capacitor is working properly. Nice looking cap as well.
