 What Kind Of Capacitor?????

I have 2 Kicker Solo Baric L7's runing them with a Hifonics Brutus Mono 1600Watts amp. It sounds great but now its way too much power for my car since I already messed my battery and alternator up. What quantity of farad should I get the capacitor? Also I plan of exchanging my 12 inch subs and try to get 4 Kicker Solobarics 10 inch L7's, how many farad's for those?? I will be runing all 4 with two Hifoncs amps, one is a mono 1600watts, and the other a mono 1200watts amp. Please help me...

You would have to get about a 5 farad cap., or get 3 1 farad caps. It is 1 farad per 1000watts of power. Hope this helps.

The problem with adding caps to his system is that his batt and alt are shot (stated in original post). Adding caps to an already inadequate charging/electrical system will not improve, but actually make the situation worse. By adding another piece of equipment that draws current, the batt and alt will continue to fail. Upgrade the big 3, then upgrade your batt if needed, and last, look at a HO alt if needed.

Good answer!! I was just answering the question about what kind of capacitor. I would figure if he wrecked his alt. and batt. that he would already have fix that first not try to bandage it up with a cap.. I will not argue with what you are saying because you are correct. I just thought that was rude that you had to try to put me down for answering a question he was asking. Later.
