Though its not a high dollar capacitor, this thing functions as good as it looks. For the price I don't think you can beat it. I have owned this cap probably about 6 months now and it's still kickin' like the 1st day I hooked it up. I would recommend this capacitor to anyone not looking to break the bank but still have a quality product.

This capacitor fixed the problem I had when my headlights dimmed when the bass hit and also actually seemed to add a little bit more punch from my sub. The capacitor also acts as a distribution block, since I just have to run wires from my capacitor to my amplifiers, instead of running multiple wires from my battery. All in all, this was absolutely worth the money.

Hooked this up two my two 12 inch Kickers and a 3000 watt amp. Doesn't have the best design but works just as it should. Used some o-rings I got at the auto store to attach some 4 gauge wire. Worked like a charm.

I have the older model for over 2 years now, have absolutely beat it to death! The voltage meter still lights up & works! Also keeps 14.67 volts, I can not kill this thing! Sonic are good people. Always good transactions!

The capacitor does its job when running 1600 watts. No light dimming, but the battery needle does move if the AC and amp are running at the same time. Overall it is a great buy and the led lights look good.

Have it wired w/4 gauge wire & it gives enough juice to both my amps head lights don't blink & the blue LEDs make my set up look great. If u need a 3 farad cap buy this one.

Really ads punch to my 2x 10" subs and 4 mids. I estimate 1500 w nominal. No more dimming headlights or dancing volt guage.
Looks cool too. Get a lot of people asking about it. Can't beat the price either.

Just installed a few days ago and immediately noticed a difference in sound quality and no lights dimming using 1000w RMS. My only problem was the wire terminal bolts are too short if using heavy duty ring terminals. The bolts only have about 1/2" of threads which left me with about 3/16" of thread to tighten them to the Cap. Found some 10mm bolts about 3/4" long that worked perfectly. Charging was very easy using the supplied resistor and alligator clip leads. The LED's turn off also after awhile if it doesn't sense any voltage changes.

This cap is great for anyone that's interested in blue lights. I put the cap with two kicker cvx and my voltage still dropped Extremly low. But the bass from the subs was much tighter and cleaner. I liked the sound it helped my amp create but if your looking for a voltage solution buy a deep cycle battery. Or a huge alternator. I'm going with alternator for my install. They both run about the same but alternators tend to last longer in my opinion.

Bad quality, pain to hook up and charge. Randomly turns off and won't come back on for hours, some times days. Spend the money to get a good name brand. It will be well worth it instead of buying this. Doesn't do anything for my system. With my 1200w amp turned less then half way up and my sub turned half way up my head lights still flicker and my dash lights dim every time it hits. Don't buy this cap unless you want to be disappointed.

Looks great with my hifonics amp. Does the job barely. When driving lights don't dim but when I'm sitting idle you can see them dim but not as bad as before. Should have gotten a 4 fared cap but this works
