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.

Very impressive!

August 7, 2011

There is a lot of controversy surrounding capacitors in car audio and if you are running a big enough system to warrant a capacitor you should probably be upgrading your battery and alternator as well as doing "The Big 3." That being said, I purchased this simply to level out the load placed on my car's electrical system (one constant load rather than a bunch of big ones) and to hopefully provide a little extra juice to my amp. If it reduced or eliminated headlight dimming then that was just icing on the cake. Charging took a while, I stopped to let the resistor cool many times but when it finally got charged up I pulled the sides off (very stiff, be careful not to break anything) and attached it to the backside of my box and got everything wired up. I was blown away by the difference it made, I got a ton of extra bass and it was much tighter and more precise than it was before. I waited until dark and took it out to see what difference it would make in my headlights with stock alternator, normal battery, and The Big 3 done and with my high beams on and the volume all the way up I could not see any dimming. I let it idle to see if the drain would dim the lights when the alternator was not putting out as much power and I still did not notice any dimming. My Boston Acoustics GTA-800m used to dim my lights pretty bad, especially at idle on high beam, and now it doesn't seem to be an issue. I bought and tested this cap as objectively as I could, I had no prior bias as to whether or not it would affect sound quality or headlight dimming and from what I have seen in my own car I highly recommend this because it gave me much better sound quality, more powerful bass, and it eliminated my headlight dimming. It seems expensive until you see and hear the results, then it becomes a bargain!

It Rocks !!!!

October 30, 2013

I have this running in my system 1/0 wire from the engine compartment to this cap then my 600x4 and my 1000 mono running off this so nice to have the built in distribution block built in to it one power wire and one ground ....everything else wires into this cap either 1/0 or 4awg wire combinations and with the big 3 in place running 1/0 wire I have no dim lights at all and the sound is so clean and smooth for the mids and highs the lows are just awesome !!!!!!

This is legit. I have been involved in car audio for almost 20 years, I've never seen a capacitor that actually did what it is supposed to until now. Highly recommended

No Question..This Cap Works!

July 14, 2013

If I had any question if capacitors work... this 10 farad cap has left me no doubts anymore. I have a 2013 Scion TC with stock alternator Big 3 done and an XS Power 4800 agm battery. Running Rockford T600 4 ch and a T1500 mono to a pair 10's and Focal on all four channels. I still felt like the bottom end was not right. It didn't stay hitting hard and somewhat muddy sounding. So, I finally coughed up the $200. Now the subs hit hard and stay hitting hard!! Even when I turn the subs up to clipping the clipping sounds cleaner, lmao. No question this cap made a significant difference. I won't bother looking into a high current alternator. I don't think it is necessary now. The cap is making up the difference without a doubt. Only complaint was it took over an hour to charge it up but it was worth the wait. IMHO if your running more than 500-750 total watts get this cap, you'll need it.

Simply... Amazing

April 23, 2012

I had previously owned a Rockford Fosgate 1 Farad Capacitor of which I was thoroughly displeased with. I was also thoroughly displeased with the RFC10HB after I hooked it up as well. However, after tinkering with it, I found that I had hooked my RE-Q5 bass restoration system's power wire up to the outgoing power on the capacitor. Therefore it was getting vast peaks and valleys in power input. After I fixed the wiring I was blown away. It sounds like I have a new set of subwoofers. Much more accurate and rich sounding than with the 1 Farad. Also, I went from significant headlight dimming to none just by hooking it up. I'm not exactly sure why, and I've heard may people say that capacitors don't help with that, but hey, I'm not going to complain. As of now I have a stock alt, stock batt, and no big3 done. I would probably leave it that way too, if I wasn't planning on upgrading my amplifier. Shell out the extra money for this capacitor if you can. I paid 100 for my 1 farad, trust me... spend two times more and get something ten times better. You'll want the upgrade in the long run anyways.

Great product!!!!

February 22, 2012

First off, I am a Rockford Fosgate fan. I own two Rockford Fosgate T-600x2 amps. They are pumping about 775 RMS a piece, for a total of 1550 watts RMS. That leads me two the two Rockford Fosgate P3DV4ohm 10's. I had already upgraded the Alternator, battery and wires. I was just really interested in getting a power source that would give the two amps steady amperage loads to stress the amps even less. This did the trick!!! I am running 1 gauge wire by Tsunami. Kinetic battery. Not the loudest system out, but enough to smash most.

This so far has been a solid capacitor. No light dimming and the sound is crystal clear. I have a p600-2 and a p450-4 hooked up to it and it handles the two amps with no problems. Looks good mounted between them too.

Amazing Product

January 18, 2014

So got the package fast as usual from Sonic, installed it with the doubt in my mind that it wouldn't work. Now bare in mind that even though I have the XS Power D4900 it still took forever to charge it. After the install I went through the regular test. Now on heavy bass note & mids & highs amp on full tilt I put my tester on the car battery & to my surprise no voltage drop. the display showed 14.2v with no music & 13.6v when the bass hits. I have a T2500BDCP & T600-4. What are you waiting for stop reading & purchse the product.

Bought this product simply to address my headlight dimming issue. It worked! No need for big 3 wiring upgrade or new alternator. Everything looks, sounds, and works great. Couldn't be happier with the price. It's been installed for a little over a month with no issues. For reference, 12inch sub, 1500watt amp... very little trunk space left in IS 250 lol

So far so good on this capacitor. It's by far the nicest looking capacitor out there. It works the way it should too...no dimming and my electrical system is running a high of 14.4 and so far nothing lower than a 13.6. I'm running a t1500-1bdcp to my T2 15 and its great.

Capacitors are worth the $

April 24, 2013

So many people bash on caps basically because they're either not using it right or just bought a cheap (flashy) one with LED lights and stuff. This thing is a true beast capacitor,I've got my RF T2500.1bdcp powered off of it with 2 runs of 1/0 and it does what it's supposed to do. Already have a Stinger 220 amp alt in truck but looking into getting a bigger Mechman alt or Excessive Amperage alt for it,also running an XS Power D3400 and D1200 together
