They're all pretty much the same. Just depends how many flashy lights you get.

Keep in mind, if your headlights are dimming, the proper fix is to make a better earth connection. A cap is a bandaid.

May be out of your price range but i have a 25 farad Rockford Fosgate Competition Series Carbon Capacitor with voltage display for sale @ $500 (was $1500). Only reason for sale is due to an upgrade.

Hmm a cap or 2m of 4GA cable? I know what looks and sounds sexier, but the cable will do a better job. As data mine said, a cap is a band-aid for a bigger problem.

Better place that in a new thread champ

And gonadman without knowing why shazza is chasing a cap its a bit hard to but forward any recommendation - caps are still one of the largest depatable items in car audio however 90% of those on forumw saying "caps are gay" wouldn't have the faintest clue - then you have those very much into the SPL scene who are strongly against them as they 'can' cause a 1 or so db loss in their SPL output number...in some cases more - in every test Ive ever performed or seen ive never witnessed a loss due to having a quality cap installed - s**t cheap ones yes......quality gear never....and it isnt all just about SPL figures...
