Keep the bass thumping and the lights from dimming with these high-quality car audio capacitors
The Planet Audio unit comes with a powerful capacitance of 10,000,000, 16 VDC of power, and a surge voltage of 24 VDC.
It features an audible alert warning to let you know if the cap reaches reverse polarity, a voltage overload, or has a low battery. Plus, it has a three-digit, bright blue LED voltage meter.
It is not compatible with 0 gauge wire, and the casing surrounding the cap is weak and can fall apart during installation. You may also get an annoying beep from the cap every time you start the vehicle.
This capacitor is rated at 3.5 farads and has a working voltage range of 16 VDC with a surge voltage of 24 VDC and a tolerance percentage of +/- 10 percent.
It is fitted with a small red text display screen to let you know the exact measure of charge and voltage in the canister. Plus, durable chrome-plated posts with hardware and mounting brackets make for simple installation.
Its large size may make things more difficult when installing it in place. It may also take up to a minute to charge the capacitor. Another drawback is you need to purchase wires to properly hook it up.
This capacitor comes with four farads, 12-volt stiffening technology, and 24-volts of surge power Plus, a negative polarity feature alerts you of any issues.
It has a lucite encapsulated digital display screen with red LED voltage meters and blue lights, detailing its charge and discharge meter. It also comes with mounting brackets plus a hardware and charging resistor with instructions for a simple installation.
Depending on where the cap is placed in the car, the flashing of the blue LED charging and discharging light may be distracting at night. While it may improve the brightness of your lights, it may not bring them up all the way.
