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 overall response of your car 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 digital hybrid
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.
Note: One Farad of capacitance is recommended for each
500 watts of amplifier power, but you can never have too much capacitance
for any system.
Digital Hybrid Capacitor: The Tsunami HCAP-5 is a 5.0 Farad
high-performance digital hybrid capacitor with digital volt meter. It
provides two 1/0 or 4-gauge inputs and four 1/0 or 4-gauge outputs for installing
a multi-amplifier system (up to three amps), totaling up to 5,000 watts RMS.
Styled Casing: The Tsunami HCAP-5 digital hybrid capacitor
features an extruded aluminum case with chrome plastic accents. It also features
a hinged cover to hide the capacitor's terminal connections.
Digital Volt Meter: The Tsunami HCAP-5 features a
blue digital LCD volt meter. Hi/Lo voltage is indicated by flashing red
Note: The Tsunami HCAP-5 has an operating working
voltage of 20-volts (24-volt surge).
High-Current Terminal Blocks: The Tsunami digital hybrid
capacitor features 1/0-gauge nickel-plated high-current terminal blocks with
4-gauge reducers. The HCAP-5 features one positive input, one negative input, 2
positive outputs, and 2 negative outputs.
