:confused: I HAVE A LIGHTING AUDIO 1F CAPACITOR. AND I FIND THAT'S STILL NOT ENOUGH. SO PEOPLE I NEED YOUR HELP. WHAT IS A COMPARABLE BRAND OR NEXT STEP IN QUALITY FROM THAT ONE. I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT TSUNAMI CAPACITOR'S ARE GOOD. I ONLY PAID $80 FOR MINE WITH INSTALLATION. SO ANY AND ALL GOOD SUGGESTIONS ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED. :cool:

perferably, first, dont type in caps next time if you can.

second, a cap isnt going to help you that much with an insane audio package. talk to an audio guru, and he will telll you the same thing because its what theyve all told me. get a good battery, an upgraded alternator if your audio isnt getting the right power needed or something. a bigger cap wont really hlep you at all in your situation im guessing. what are you running?

I was told as a rule of thumb, 1 farad per 1k watts. Does that sound right to everyone? I have a 2 farad for both of my amps and am pushing 1,600 watts, have a yellow top, but need to get a rewound alternator in there soon.
