I love the discussion that comes out on caps. There is fixed feelings about their usefullness and effectiveness. I use one in my system and found i have very stable voltage supply even when i'm driving the system hard but this may be because of the dual battery set-up. I suggest if you have everything else in your system right, (ie you have the amps, and speakers your after and dont require anything else), and you have the room then adding one is a good idea particularly if you have more than 2 amps. If you are still buying pieces of your system i would say there are things which are a lot more important than a cap.

i found in my old system i had in my old car my 5 farad cap did pretty much f**k all!! had to but another odyssey in the back so i had to 1000cca ones... then that stoped my subs cutting out..
i had 4 amps though..
2 1000d crossfire to run to 15's
and 2 150.2 to run my speakers front and rear

My suggestion is your better of puttin another batt in the back..

I agree A battery is by far the best option, algthough it costs a little more and takes up more space.


PS Crossfire 1000d's - nice ampsImage

Funny you should say that. I first got into car audio and was keen for SPL and heaps of bass. Saved up and bought 2 Soundstream SPL 160 Dual Vocie coil 15's and an earthquake digital amp to power them with over 2000RMS but ended up getting sick of bass pretty quickly and SQ is much more enjoyable for me and others, and it doesn't mean you can't still have a nice loud bass response if you want.

yeah what he said,
the capacitor just stores power and releases it when its needed. e.g a long bass note etc.
i dont think it will fry anything


actually caps store voltage not power.
