Just to let you know My audiobahn cap has a built in resistor so it's automatic charge and discharge.acuradriva on Sep/29/02 said:Ground the cap to a ground not the amp. Then you charge the cap with the resistor that came with it. Hold it on the + of the cap with the wire from the batt. only do it for like 2 secs. It will get hot and smoke. Then hook up that wire to the + on the cap and run another one from the + on the cap to the + on the amp.
with out getting too angry at the fact that this has been covered about 30 other times if you search....try runnign a new ground right down to the frame of the car, and a new 12v constatnt wire directly from the battery to the headunit, using a solid, like say 16awg wire....that should help take care of your dimming head unit...if it still persists, then you are over drawing your car's electrical system and its time to go and get a wound alternator....vietsociety408 on Sep/30/03 said:after hookin up my capacitor my head unit still dim any one know tha problem?
Yet another reason to get a 4 channel amp and not use the deck to power your door speakers. Your drawing too much power from the deck.vietsociety408 on Sep/30/03 said:after hookin up my capacitor my head unit still dim any one know tha problem?
is it bad to ground the amp and cap like that? kind of like 'parallel' wiring. is it a disadvantage to ground it like that?NeoSilverTeg on Sep/28/02 said:just put the cap in between your power wires and your amp.
"+" power wire from battery ~~~~> "+" terminal on cap ~~~~> "+" or source on your amp.
"-" or ground from amp ~~~~> "-" terminal on cap ~~~~> "grounded somewhere on your teg's frame.
