Question about Jl Audio 13W7 Car Subwoofer
You need to get a 5 or 10 farad capacitor and that should take care of your problem
Posted on Jul 19, 2009
Your lights are dimming because your system is pulling too much current from your car. Your battery provides long-term sustained power, but your system wants to draw power faster than your alternator and battery can provide it. When the amp attempts to draw more amperage than the battery and alternator can produce, it creates a voltage differential in your system, which attempts to steal electricity from the rest of your system (like your lights). The most common solution for lights dimming is to add some level of adequate capacitance to your car. Capacitors store electricity and deliver it quickly to your amps as needed. Capacitors resist voltage changes by producing large amounts of amperage. This means that the capacitor(s) will provide the electrical bursts that your amps want so that it doesn't have to steal it from your lights. You can start out with 1.0 Farad, if the problem doesn't go away, add another one, and so on until the problem is gone. You cannot have too much capacitance, it's just an electrical buffer for your audio system.
