Overview

Our take on the Tsunami LITEWAVE Series PP912UM-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 Lite Wave Series 1.2-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. 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.

Not sure if the lights are suppost to go off after a couple of minutes but they do...other than that I think it is working. I installed in a BMW 525i and it is hooked up to a MTX jackhammer amp pushing two MTX 12's. No lights dimming. Seems to work fine.

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: There is a digital charge level indicator display. The digital display shows your precise voltage in 0.1 volt steps.

Flashing LEDs: There are eight blue LEDs that pulse with the charge/discharge cycles.

Audible Voltage Warning: If the voltage drops below 10 volts or rises above 17.5 volts the capacitor emits an audible alarm.

Installation

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.

Specifications

Specifications:

  • Capacitance: 1.2 Farad
  • Maximum Operating DC Voltage: 24 volt/30 volt surge
  • ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance): < 0.002 ohm
