About the Tsunami LITEWAVE Series PP1002TM
With Tsunami capacitors, you'll never have to worry about getting enough power to the amplifiers in your high-end mobile audio system. This 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 and a blue LED accent ring add a cool look to your installation. An audible warning lets you know if the voltage is too low or too high.

More details on the Tsunami LITEWAVE Series PP1002TM
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 500 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.
LED Ring: Once the capacitor is charged, ten blue LEDs around the base of the terminals light up.
Chasing LEDs: There are two rows of two blue chase 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.
Sleep Mode: After a few minutes without any load (with the amp off) the capacitor enters a sleep mode; all the lights turn off to avoid discharging the cap, and subsequently the car's battery.
Installation: On the top of the capacitor on the right side are three positive terminals. These terminals are shorted together, so they are interchangeable, one is connected to the battery (and fused at the battery), the other two to the positive inputs on the amps. On the top of the capacitor on the left side are three negative terminals. These terminals are shorted together, so they are interchangeable, any of them can be grounded to the car's chassis. The positive and negative terminals are set screw terminals, each sized for 2 gauge wire, but they're shipped with a removable insert sized for 4 gauge wire. Before the battery is connected you must charge the capacitor with the included light bulb.
