Capacitors are used in car audio systems that require additional power on an instantaneous basis. This occurs when heavy bass notes hit in the recorded material. During these bass notes, the current demand on the system is increased and can cause voltage drops. Alphasonik Capacitors act as a power reservoir, supplying added power to keep your system playing strong.
Alphasonik recommends at least 1 Farad of capacitance per 500 watts RMS (1000 watts peak) of amplifier output. This is a general rule of thumb and may be adjusted up or down depending on the efficiency and design of the amplifiers being used. There is no harm in having more than enough capacitance.
