    Maybe it was just the one I got but I doubt it. First of all when I got the product one of the holders was broke. Then I had this hooked up in my car for a bit and went too work on muy system. When I did I noticed the terminals were loose thought I had forgotten to tighten then. No that was not the problem the set screws didn't want to hold good so when I went to make sure they where tight the screw went all the way through and I have 0 gauge wire. Also when went too remove product the negative terminal moved on me so took it back for a refund. Which was a hassle because it w was after15 days. But they did take care of me.

    I got this capacitor because I was having some problems with lights dimming and also my amp cutting off on hard bass notes. I saw many cheap capacitors online, but was afraid I wouldn't really be getting the advertised capacitance. With this one, even though it's only 1 farad, my amp no longer cuts out on low voltage, and my lights stopped dimming to where it's not a problem now. I definitely feel I got what I paid for with this cap.

    I was skeptical at first about getting a Cap for my car. Many websites say it takes away the bass from the system and that it really isn't helpful with preventing the lights from dimming. After installing: first drive around town, still saw a little dim of lights and bass sounded sort of different; second night, lights didn't dim and bass was the same as before. In conclusion, caps do help with the lights and are also a fun accessory to have for your amp setup.

    Its really great, provides a huge difference in amount of power to your amp. Especially if you have a stock battery, alternator I didnt notice much change from getting the kicker, alot thicker, install kit (4 gauge). FROM a rockford fosgate install kit(8gauge) Capacitor allows your car to have enough power to function. Ex. Lights dimming..etc.

    I had this capacitor installed in April of this year with geek squad for my 800 rms amp. At first it was working great, I noticed the lights weren't dimming as much as before so that was a plus for me. This past week out of nowhere the capacitor would turn off and take 20 minutes to recharge everytime the bass would drop.

    Does the job but weak connectors

    I'm running about 1200 watts and it did help a little but I really needed 2 farads. When I was connecting the wires I noticed the connectors are not solid and if you applied too much torque I can see it easily breaking. I got a 2 farad cap on the net cheaper than this one and it was higher quality.

    Main reason I got it was to stop my headlights from dimming. It works awesome. Yea the connectors go in to far if you are using anything 8 gauge or smaller. But if you know anything about installing you know you can strip the wire more and then just double it up and it works fine....

    My Alternator is bad and makes the stereo clip out after 30seconds with volume level at 50%. After installed I had volume at 85% for over 30 minutes no problems had it installed at best buy with the rest of my stereo. They did a great job and appreciated there kindness after returning 3 times
