HEY GUY..FIRST THING....GOOD JOB IN GETTING A BIG CAP :) ...SECOND I HAVE WIRED THESE FOR YEARS..ITS REALLY VERY EASY.......THE OBJECTIVE IS TO PUT THIS IN LINE WITH YOUR AMP....SO WITHIN ABOUT A FOOT AND A HALF OF YOUR AMP..YOU WANT TO 1.. CUT YOUR POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE WIRES RUNNING THE POWER TO YOUR AMP...2. YOU WILL THEN CUT THE INSULATION OFF AROUND THE POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE WIRES ON BOTH ENDS OF THE WIRES YOU HAVE JUST CUT(YOU WILL END UP HAVING THE 2 POS AND 2 NEG. WIRES WITH THE INSULATION PEELED OFF)... 3... YOU WILL THEN JUST HAVE THE 2 WIRES (WITH THE INSULATION GONE OFF OF THEM) OUT OF THE AMP..AND THE OTHER 2 STRIPPED OFF RUNNING TO THE CAR BATTERY (POS) AND THE (NEG) TO THE CAR FRAME OR NEG BATTERY POST... 4.. YOU WILL THEN JUST MATCH UP THE POSITIVE FROM THE AMP INTO THE POSITIVE ON THE CAP...AND THE POSITIVE GOING BACK TO THE BATTERY OF YOUR CAR TO THE POSITIVE ON THE CAPACITOR...DO THE SAME THING WITH ALL OF THE NEGATIVES.......
SUMMARY.... CUT THE NEG. AND POSITIVE WIRES.WITHIN 1.5 FT FROM THE AMP.... PEEL INSULATION ON WIRES BACK ABOUT .5" ON ALL 4 WIRES.... PUT ALL THE POSITIVES TOGETHER AND ALL THE NEGATIVES TOGETHER...AND YOU CANT GO WRONG....THANK YOU
Good Luck

Capacitor on induction blower


How many uf is indicated on the capacitor.It will show a number ie 10uf. If the rating on the capacitor is more than 5uf or less than 3 uf then the capacitor is failing. 10% variance is acceptable. Most electrical wholesalers sell capacitors and cost is around $20.00 or so.

How am I going to connect it to my car,Im wondering why it doesnt have a remote terminal like what the other capacitor brand had.


it's like a battery. you run it in parallel (run power from battery + to capacitor + then from capacitor + to ampplifier +) battery, capacitor, and amp each has its own ground (black or -). you don't need a remote wire. it only stores electricity until the amplifier needs extra juice (so your headlights won't dim).

How to wire a 10 farad power acoustik capaciter


With BIG wires from battery to cap and then to your amp.

Good idea to put fuse or fusible link between bat + and the cap. Protects against fires.

If one wanted to be safe from starter motor transients I would gate the + power lead with a power relay between the battery and the cap. This relay should close when you are in run or accessory position of your key switch. I recommend this as there are so MANY dead car audio amps. Just search for them on here! A bunch of them MIGHT be caused by inductive transients during starter motor shutdown. Note the inductance is in the grounding wire from teh battery to the engine/chassis.

25 farad cap slowly losing its charg if the car sits for to long


Cap is hooked up wrong, should shut off after a certain amount of time and reactivate with the ignition hot wire. If it's draining your battery continuously then you should look at the wiring.

Cant figure out how to wire a power acoustik 5 farad power cap.


Use to independent grounds always better that way. Better full field for power and less distortion. I like to use 4 guage or lower like 0 guage for high powered systems. Good luck, thanks for using FIX YA
