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.
Display: There is a digital charge level indicator display. The digital
display shows your precise voltage in 0.1 volt steps.
There are eight blue LEDs that pulse with the charge/discharge
Audible Voltage Warning:
If the voltage drops below 10 volts or rises above 17.5 volts the capacitor
emits an audible alarm.
Installation: On the top of the capacitor
there are two screw terminals, one positive and one negative. The positive
terminal is 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. Ring terminals with minimum inner diameter of
0.244" (6.2mm) should be used to connect all the wires.
Charging Bulb: The capacitor comes with a charging bulb built into the top of the capacitor to
assist you in initially charging the capacitor. A separate charging bulb is also included in the package.
