Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Overview: This T-Spec v6-series digital capacitor will improve the
performance of your car's electrical system by acting as a buffer between the
alternator and your amplifier. Stored energy from your car's electrical system
is held in the cap and quickly released to the amplifier when needed. High current demand occurs when the music you are playing contains a loud, transient, deep bass signal.
Capacitance: This T-Spec v6-series digital capacitor has a rating of
1.5 farads. While you can never have too much capacitance, it is recommended that you use a capacitor with a minimum of 1 Farad for each 1000 watts of amplifier power.
Terminals: The capacitor features an impact-resistant polycarbonate cover with two terminals on the top that can be tightened/loosened with the supplied 5mm Allen wrench. You should use power and ground cables that are equipped with ring terminals with 1/4" diameter or larger holes.
Voltage Meter: This capacitor has a digital voltage meter on the top
to help you monitor your electrical system's performance.
Reverse Polarity Protection: If the capacitor is wired
incorrectly, you can damage your equipment or electrical system. To prevent
this, the capacitor has an internal relay system which disables the capacitor
and triggers a buzzer to sound.
Resistor Bulb: The capacitor comes with a 1/2-watt, 1000 ohm resistor bulb
which is used when initially charging the capacitor, and to discharge the
capacitor when removing it from the system. You should keep the resistor bulb in
a safe storage location when not in use.
Mounting System: The cap comes with a simple mounting system that lets
you mount the unit vertically or horizontally, using the four supplied
