About the T-Spec Capacitor
Smooths out the bass
Smooths out the bass
T-Spec's 1.5-farad capacitor will help your vehicle's charging system keep up with your high-powered sound setup. When the power of the bass threatens to overwhelm the electrical system, this cap quickly provides a jolt of stored power to keep the beat pounding and your headlights from dimming. And it recharges quickly, so it's always ready for the next hit.
Displays the voltage
A bright, digital meter displays your system's voltage, so you can monitor how things are going and avoid overtaxing your vehicle's charging system. We recommend this 1.5-farad cap for any sub amplifier delivering up to 1,500 watts RMS. Warranty: 1 year.

More details on the T-Spec Capacitor
Overview: This T-Spec v6-series digital capacitor will improve the performance of your car's electrical system by acting as a buffer between the alternator and your amplifier. Stored energy from your car's electrical system is held in the cap and quickly released to the amplifier when needed. High current demand occurs when the music you are playing contains a loud, transient, deep bass signal.
Capacitance: This T-Spec v6-series digital capacitor has a rating of 1.5 farads. While you can never have too much capacitance, it is recommended that you use a capacitor with a minimum of 1 Farad for each 1000 watts of amplifier power.
Terminals: The capacitor features an impact-resistant polycarbonate cover with two terminals on the top that can be tightened/loosened with the supplied 5mm Allen wrench. You should use power and ground cables that are equipped with ring terminals with 1/4" diameter or larger holes.
Voltage Meter: This capacitor has a digital voltage meter on the top to help you monitor your electrical system's performance. Once current fluctuation ceases, the display will turn off and go to sleep. In order for it to turn back on, it must sense current draw again.
Reverse Polarity Protection: If the capacitor is wired incorrectly, you can damage your equipment or electrical system. To prevent this, the capacitor has an internal relay system which disables the capacitor and triggers a buzzer to sound.
Resistor Bulb: The capacitor comes with a 1/2-watt, 1000 ohm resistor bulb which is used when initially charging the capacitor, and to discharge the capacitor when removing it from the system. You should keep the resistor bulb in a safe storage location when not in use.
Mounting System: The cap comes with a simple mounting system that lets you mount the unit vertically or horizontally, using the four supplied self-tapping screws.
