Our take on the Focal FPS High Cap by Crutchfield's Buck Pomerantz
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.

Thanks for submitting your review
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.

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 ]
