Question Power capacitor, anyone?

Does anyone here uses a Power Capacitor connected in parallel to the battery power, in case if you use a current suckng Power Amplifier?

If yes, did you notice any significant difference in the performance of your sub-woofer?

I came across this 1 Farad Power capacitor but I thought of asking it here first, before buying.

Thanks in advance!

NO need to buy it. It will make no difference audibly.

Thanks mate... So it just gives a kind of visual modification to your ICE... Some of those Power Cap.s looked really cool, with light tubes through the sides, which can be made to operate on the beats.

Hey I have this problem, my headlamps vaguely goes less bright when I blast the music, and esp. when there are heavy bass beats. But it is okay with me. I can notice this blinking even in the cabin light.

BTW, your ICE looks really cool, with that lighting arrangements! 1.5 Farad capacitor eh?!

Clevermax,

Please take the time to use the SEARCH feature before creating new threads.

This has been discussed several times before.

Try doing an advanced search for "capacitor" in all the titles in the ICE section.
