Why you cant do without a car audio capacitor.

By: Mantius Cazaubon

I've heard the question asked many times before, 'Do I reallyneed a capacitor?' Before answering that question I ask, 'Do youhave a high powered system?' 'Does it require sudden powerbursts?' 'Is your amplifier being robbed of power?' If theanswers to my questions are yes, make every effort to connect acapacitor to your car audio system.

A capacitor is a bit similar to your car battery; it storeselectrical energy. But unlike a battery it doesn't produce itsown power, it simply stores it. A car audio capacitor will helpyou get the most from your amplifier. It will store power forrelease on demand, delivering it to your amplifier just whenit's needed.

Your car amplifier requires a lot of power to play loud music,especially when there's lots of heavy bass. Without a capacitoryour amplifier will be robbed of power by parts like yourlights, engine, and air conditioner.

So what happens when your car audio amplifier doesn't receiveenough power?

A common occurrence is dimming lights. In such a situation thelight will follow the beat of the music. The light will dim eachtime a heavy bass note sounds. If you were to turn off thelights, your car stereo system would suddenly sound louder andthe music would be cleaner.

Your amplifier is simply trying to use more energy than theelectrical system can supply. If a capacitor had been presentthere would have been enough energy to power your amp. Thatelectrical energy would have already been stored.

When you want to reduce headlight dimming, improve bassresponse, and increase the power of your amp, a stiffeningcapacitor is a must. Equipped with capacitor and an adequatepower supply, your system will get every bit of current itneeds. Voltage drops will be a thing of the past.

With so many brands available online, it's easy to find acapacitor that meets your needs. You can choose from popularbrands like Phoenix-Digital, Blitz-Audio, Kole-Audio, Pyramid,SoundStorm, Lanzar, Power-Acoustik, Pyle, Legacy, Nitro-BMW,SPL, and Volfenhag. No longer will your car amplifier be hungryfor power
