Overview

Our take on the Focal FPS High Cap

Focal's FPS High Cap outboard capacitor module reinforces the power of your FPS amp exactly when — and where — it's needed most. This cap maintains high current flow to your amplifier, and smoothes out any power fluctuations caused by sudden musical demands, so you enjoy consistent, superb sound quality.

Focal's FPS High Cap outboard capacitor module reinforces the power of your FPS amp exactly when — and where — it's needed most. This cap maintains high current flow to your amplifier, and smoothes out any power fluctuations caused by sudden musical demands, so you enjoy consistent, superb sound quality.

While most car audio caps wire up to the amp's power connections, Focal's High Cap module plugs directly into your FPS amplifier to reinforce power where it counts — as close as possible to the amp's output stage. Power transfers from cap to amp instantaneously, resulting in improved dynamic and transient response, especially in the low frequencies.

Priced per module

Great addition to a solid amp. Does improve clarity and stability when running an additional sub amp.

Worthwhile investment

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The hicaps are well worth the money. I was hesitant to purchase these, I'm glad I did though. They made a massive difference in sound at over 50% volume. My K2's absolutely thump with lower frequencies now. If you are running speakers that handle lots of power or enjoy louder music the hicaps are worth it.

Pros: Night and day response over 50% volume. Speakers are loving the extra power from hicaps

Cons: Really wish these were just built into the amp originally.

Awesome Add-on!

Great addition to a solid amp. Does improve clarity and stability when running an additional sub amp.

Pros: Easy hook up. Even better clarity and less worry about over straining charging system.

Cons: Not many - you have to pay for quality.

are the hi-caps worth it?

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Emphatically yes...I have used external capacitors with car amps in the past but the Focal arrangement is better engineered and really does work....ten minutes to install and better bass, smoother highs and an altogether sweeter response from the amp, Focal Polyglass speakers and the JL Stealth subwoofer. Well worth the money !

Pros: better sound overall not just in the bass where I expected it, a good value upgrade

Cons: none really apart from the additional cost and finding a suitable space to install

Features

Overview: The Focal High-Cap is an external power supply module. Once connected to a compatible Focal amplifier, it increases the amplifier's power supply. The resulting benefit is a higher-fidelity audio signal from your connected Focal amplifier and overall better music performance, with enhanced dynamic behavior, improved speaker control and punchier bass.

Compatibility: The Focal High-Cap is compatible with the following Focal FPS series amplifiers.

  • FPS 1500
  • FPS 2160
  • FPS 2300RX
  • FPS 4160

Note: The FPS 2160, FPS 2300RX, and FPS 4160 amplifiers require two Focal High-Caps.

Connection Cable: The Focal High-Cap has an attached 11" cable terminated by a proprietary 4-pin connector which plugs into the proprietary High-Cap port of the compatible Focal amplifier.

Q & A

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Hoping to get rid of an engine whine. Bought 1 cap thinking it'd do the trick, but I found this amp is really just 2 smaller amps, so if you bought one cap, it'd only work on 2 channels. [ Charles  May 05, 2016 ]
