I strongly recommend charging your capacitor before you hook it up and begin using it.

Most Power Cap's will come with a 'resistor' your should first charge the Capacitor with this resistor (until it is charged (14v)), and then install it.

Otherwise, sparks *will* fly.

Need more info. Are you sying that your lights pulse to the bass? Capacitors help. I would recomend at LEAST a 2 farad. Make sure you are using GOOD QUALITY 4 gauge power wire. So many "kits" say 4 gauge, but strip it back and you have a glorified 8 guage wire. I've seenit. Also, MAKE SURE that it is ran to the bayttery and use the SAME gauge for the ground (no more that 4 feet if possible).

In case your next question is "how do I hook up a Cap?", here it goes:

Power AND ground to the cap, then power AND ground from cap to the amp input. So very easy!!

Take care,

I have a jl audio 1000/1v2 my probem is the low volt ligth blinking and dosen t work wath shut I do


The low voltage light would indicate that there is not enough power reaching the amplifier through the power wire. Are you using 4awg or bigger wire? Is the amp grounded well? Does this happen all the time or just at high volume?

Try checking your power and ground connections and ensure that you are using the correct size of wire.

Ov4-1600 When i play at loud volume, the amp shuts off or fades in and out . All lights shut off as well when sound fades, wiring is good and no shorts... Help me out....


If you are 100% sure that you have checked all the wiring, this is usually due to not enough current reaching the amp. Make sure you are using the right size power wire (4awg) and that the power and ground connections are solid. This could also be due to a bad ground to the chassis.

Ok i got a mtx 12' 500 sub matched to a alpine mrd-m500 mono amp. The deck powers the 4 speakers, as i turn the volume up on my deck (alpine cde 100) the sub/amp cuts out at around volume 20-22 and E-3...


Sorry,after rereading your problem,I gave a wrong answer.Do you have the deck sub RCA pre-amps connected to the amp,then the wires from the amp to the sub?If you do,you need to check what the sub and amp are rated as such as,peak or rms.They are 2 completely different meanings.Greg

I hooked up the 500/1 amp and when the bass hits it turns off where can i get it fixed or how do i get it to stop doing that i live in fontana ca maybe you have a shop near by


Check your ground connections. Alot of times when the amplifier is pushed to its higher levels of power if it doesnt have a solid ground connection it will kind of choke itself. Also with the amplifier you should make sure there are no knicks or anything in the power cable. Make sure you are running a 4awg power and ground cable with solid and clean connectors on the ends. Also that amplifier needs a good anl fuse holder with at least 100 amp fuse.

JL Amp isn't powering subs and speakers


silly as it sounds, you may want to check your EQ settings on your headunit. Things like sub volume, SLA, loudness and balance. When they replaced your battery, those old settings were lost.
