Our take on the Tsunami Litewave Series PP92UM-CAP

With Tsunami capacitors, you'll never have to worry about getting enough power to the amplifiers in your high-end mobile audio system. This Litewave Series 2-farad cap stores up a reservoir of power, and delivers it exactly when your amps, subs, and speakers need it most.

The blue LCD meter shows you just how much juice your cap is putting out, while blue flashing LEDs add a cool look to your installation. An audible warning lets you know if the voltage is too low or too high.

Nice cap. I have ZERO noise and no speaker fade at all no matter how taxing the music I'm playing is on my PDX-M6 and 10" Alpine Type-R set to 2ohm

As Expected

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As expected showed up very quickly, double-wrapped extremely securely by Crutchfield, and fit well into my install. I have it connected to my JBL GTO 1201.1 sub amp and two 12" Alpine Type-R's (one generation older than the ones that just came out, 4th i believe, rated for 500 watts RMS). The amp is pushing a little over 1100 watts RMS to them at 2 ohms in a sealed box, 1.2 cubic ft. each chamber. I have the amp grounded through the cap as well by wiring the amp's negative terminal to one of the negative terminals on the cap's distribution block. The other negative terminal on the cap is grounded to the chassis. It's in a '99 BMW E46 so the battery being in the trunk simplified things as well, and as it's closer to the cap/amp it helps contribute to pretty low fluctuation values in my displayed system voltage meter on the cap, and lighting fast power transfers from the cap to amp when needed. I didn't know much about the name Tsunami before buying, but as Crutchfield sells it and it had great reviews I went ahead and got it and don't regret it at all. No headlight dimming or system noise whatsoever, just pure, uninterrupted power.

Pros: Built-in Terminal Block works great, very convenient Voltage meter looks great, says "lo" as in "low" when it first detects charge/power or is about to shut off (as voltage is dropping, like when you turn off running car) Dragon design looks dumb, but so do most caps and it doesn't look like it will scrape off easily, so at least it was made well Decent price for a 2F cap with these features, but with Crutchfield's customer service and fast shipping (3 days to Hawaii, for free - what?! worth

Cons: Moves around a tiny bit sitting in its 2 plastic mounts if you press on it Dragon graphic looks kinda cheesy, would have preferred something cleaner or more plain

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have read a lot of negative reviews online about capacitors. And either they were incorrectly installed, and/or, the person had a lousy alternator to begin with. Otherwise 1 of the "the big 3" would not even be necessary in most cases. I am rinning a 1200watt amp and 2-580 watt amps, along with 4 subs,on a Pioneer DEH-P6900UB head-unit. And before adding this capacitor, my headlights would flicker when I turn the volume up. So after I installed this capacitor, I did a test. With my vehicle in the garage, I turned out all the lights, turned my headlights on, then turned the volume up. No more flickering! Great product, easy to install, would recommend it to anyone.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The product does everything it claimed to, and the music sounds great. Having said that, if I were to purchase another, I would look for a model with a remote turn on wire. This unit "turns on" when it senses voltage fluctuations. It has a bright blue display that shows system voltage. When I get out of the car, the door light causes a voltage change, and the display lights up, bringing my car attention I may not want it to have depending on the neighborhood. This is taking all of the stealth out of my stealth install. Also, the instructions said to charge the unit using a resistor. No resistor was included. Instead there was a "charging bulb". The crutchfield guys got me headed in the right path, but the instructions with the unit really should be updated. If I buy another I will look for an internal charge protection feature. Fussing with the bulb every time you reconnect gets old.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had just recently purchased 2 P3 Rockford Fosgates pushing 400w each and a 800w amp also by Rockford. I needed a capacitor to help keep constant power to the subs but really didnt know much about them. So I called in and talked to one of the advisors and he suggested the 2 farad Tsunami Litewave series cap. I was then informed that for every Farad it could withstand 500w which was what I needed. He was certainly on point with that. I put it to the test once I got the cap. No cut offs at all!! Great product, glad I bought it. So whoever says it doesn't work, its either defective, installed wrong or they have the wrong wiring. I have 4 gauge wires going in and out of the cap, which it asked for. Thanks Crutchfield

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this cap and my sub amp is running off of it. I didn't really think that having one of these would make a difference; I thought it's just something that professionals have in their system to make people think it's really powerful. I was wrong. I turn my system up and you can't even tell from my trucks electrical system that I am pushing some serious juice through it. I would recomend this cap because it can handle all the power that a normal, everyday sound system is going to utilize. It's free power for your amplifiers! Why wouldn't you want one?

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great product and provides the perfect amount of power to my amp! Ever since I hooked up this product, my lights in my truck never flickered again, nor did I ever lose power to the subs/amp ever again. The LED display is also a great tool to have. For the extra money, I upgraded to this model over the 1.0 farad model just to be safe to ensure I had enough power in my truck and I think you should do the same.

Overview

Overview: The overall response of your audio system will be enhanced with the use of capacitors due to their ability to store a large amount of current and discharge it quickly to supplement your amplifier's power supply during high current demand (bass note). The Tsunami capacitor is a logical addition to your system due to the fact that automotive batteries aren't designed to deliver the current to satisfy the requirements of high powered audio components. It can also filter AC voltage induced in the system by the amplifier's power supply which could cause objectionable noise. One Farad of capacitance is recommended for each 1,000 watts of amplifier power, but you can never have too much capacitance for any system.

Features

Display: The Tsunami PP92UM-CAP Power Capacitor features a blue digital volt meter.

 Protection Warning: The PP92UM-CAP features a high/low voltage warning and reverse voltage protection alarm.

Auto Turn-On/Off: The Tsunami Power Capacitor features current sensing auto turn-on with auto turn-off timer.

Quality Construction: The Power Capacitor features a silver brushed anodized case and satin nickel-plate solid-brass terminal blocks. The terminal blocks and support 1/0 AWG or 4 AWG wire.

Installation

Installation: On the top of the capacitor there are four set-screw terminals, two positive and two negative. The positive terminals are connected to the battery (and fused at the battery) and to the positive input on the amp. The negative is grounded to the car's chassis.

Charging Bulb: The capacitor comes with a charging bulb to assist you in initially charging the capacitor.

Specifications

Specifications:

  • Capacitance: 2.0 Farad
  • Maximum Operating DC Voltage: 18-volt / 24-volt surge
