Do your lights dim when the bass drops? If so, your car stereo system may be putting too much strain on your battery and alternator. Adding a Power Capacitor or Power Cap can help by supplying your amplifier with an extra boost when it needs it, reducing the strain on your battery and making sure your system has the power it needs at all times.
Most of the time we recommend 1 Farad capacitors for every 1,000 watts RMS of total system power. Using larger value capacitors is OK and you may see benefits with 2 or 3 Farads per 1,000 watts RMS. Essentially, the larger the capacitor, the faster it can get ready for the amplifier’s next big power hit.
