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: The Lighting Audio (LDDC1) 1 .0 Farad Capacitor allows you to
help maintain continuous power to other devices, such as amplifiers, in your car
Digital Display: There is a digital charge level indicator display.
The digital display shows your precise voltage in 0.1 volt steps.
Ultra Low ESR: Ultra Low ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance) allow
quick power delivery of up to 10,000 amps instantly.
High Gain Foil: High Gain Foil allows more capacitance in a smaller
area through the process of etching the foil to create more surface area.
Polarity Buzzer: The digital cap features on/off/reverse polarity
buzzer. A buzzer will sound if the capacitor is connected backwards to ensure
that the positive and negative leads are connected correctly.
Auto Turn-On: The Auto-turn of feature turns on the digital
capacitor's display during standard operating (voltage fluctuation). After 5
minutes of non-use (no fluctuation) the digital capacitor automatically reverts
to sleep mode.
Wiring: When installing capacitor, is is recommended you use the same
gauge wire as that of the power connection to the amplifier. Ground the
capacitor to the nearest chassis ground using the same gauge wire as that used
for the power connections. It is strongly recommended that the capacitor be
fused at the battery. The fuse value should be the same as that of the power
connection to the amplifier. This fuse should be installed 18" or less from the
Note: If the capacitor is to be used in a multi-amp system, a
power distribution block may be used between the capacitor and
the amplifiers. It should be wired using the same gauge wire as that of the
Placement: The Lighting Audio 1.0 Farad Capacitor should be mounted as
close to your amplifier as possible, within 18" of the amplifier, keeping the
wire runs short to reduce voltage losses in the cables. Use the supplied
mounting brackets to secure the capacitor as close the the amplifier as
Mounting: The capacitor may be mounted in any position; however, car
should be taken to ensure the venting hole on the top is unobstructed at
all times. This vent is a relief valve should the electrical polarity become
crossed. Should the capacitor be damaged, fluid will exit from this vent
rendering the capacitor useless.
