Your Powercap will turn off, you will find that it will take a while sometimes because there is always power going through your car. i.e if your interior light is on.. boot light anything that consumes power will effect this.

They do turn off tho once the car is left for a while :)

Hope this helps

I have a PCX-5F POWER ACOUSTIK 5-Farad Digital Capacitor and after i turn the car off it stays on and sometimes when the keys not even in the ignition the cap stay on. why is it doing that?


It is a capacitor. Please read up on how capacitors work and it will explain itself.

The capacitor is holding a charge, just like it was designed to do.

Are the capacitors suppose to stay lit and will it kill my battery?


It should be turned off with the key. If it continues to stay on it is installed incorrectly to a constant power source.

It stays on all of the time and it is draining my battery


once a capacitor is charged, it should not be draining the battery, are you sure it is not something else in the system?

It's beeping when turned on. Why?


I have read that if the polarity is reversed, or the connections are backwards, the Capacitor will beep. If this is not the case, it may need to be replaced.

Check the wires going to the amp for any corrosion on the terminals and ground.

. Kind of like when someone squeezes a garden hose2_bing.gif when your trying to use it. That would be the high volume, starving the amplifier. The capacitor stores power in it to power the amp at high volume. 2 farads would probably be bulletproof on a single amplifier system, but 1 farad should work well enough. Or seek help from an expert on exactly what size capacitor you should use. If you find yourself saying: My amp cuts out.

If this assisted in solving your problem, please take the time to rate it. Thank you.

First off, are you trying to stop lights from dimming? Because a capacitor is only a band aid to solving that issue. If you are using a capacitor for its intended purpose (to smooth out the voltage input to the amp, thus providing a more consistent voltage level), the general rule is 1 farad per 1000 watts rms. I hate to tell you caps aren't worth it, but this amp is a good amp. There are built in capacitors already. If you really want to see an improvement in your system, you will want a quality cap along side a quality amp. Look for an Alumapro capacitor. They go all the way up to 50 farads. High in price, very high in quality. Perfect compliment to an amp such as yours.
