First off Charging the capacitor can put you holding a high power voltage source. This can be very dangerous. It is enough to kill you. I suggest for safety go ahead and mount the capacitor in its location. The easy way to charge a capacitor is using a 12 volt Battery Charger. Hook the charger up to the capacitor just like it is a battery. + to + and - to - ... Charge the capacitor until the charger meter falls to near zero amps or indictates full charge. No need to use a light bulb or anything. The Charger comes with it own limiting circuitry. I will be posting the wiring instruction shortly.

SOURCE: my 20 farad boss capacitor lights up but dont

OK this just happened to me an i tried something that might work for you all i did was disconnect the main power cord from the battery then double check your wire connections to your fuse then after your done checking the wire connect the power cord back to the battery then start your car up turn the radio on an your display volts should be there

For some reason my capacitor wont charge, I've checked everything! I just bought a boss cap3.5b and I know for sure the fuse is working there is power coming from the battery and the cap is grounded...


get a small led or something that runs on 12 volts. i use my 5 dollar 12v test light and hold it to the positive cable thats gonna be hooked to my cap.
hook the other side to the cap, it will light up the test light and in a minute or two the light dims and then goes out, after its out , the cap is charged......JUST DONT LET IT TOUCH THE OPPOSITE WIRE WHEN YOU HOOK IT UP OR YOU DISCHARGE IT and its not funny

HOW DO I CHARGE THIS


Just Connect in line the same as you would with a fuse. Battery to the cap and then cap to the Amp. There is no step to just"charge it" per say. All it really does is provide that little extra energy your amp requires when hitting really low frequencies.

Describe how to connect a scosche 500k micro farad


Put the capactior in parallel with your battery right before the amplifier. So Postive lead of cap to your 12 Volt line and negative lead goes to ground. It is also suggested that you charge the cap before placing it directly in parallel with the 12 volt rail. yo ucan do this by using a 1000 ohm resistor with a power rating of 1 watt. Disconnect your amplifiers so it is just your cap and battery. Replace the fuse with the 1000 ohm resistor. Once the resistor is in place hook up your cap. It will take a little bit for it to charge. RC time constant is T = Reistance X Capacitance. So 1000 ohms X .5 Farads = is about 8 minutes, or you can just measure the voltage with an volt meter and when the cap reads 12VDC you can then hook it up. BE CAREFUL NOT TO SHORT TERMINALS. THIS CAPACITOR I STORING A LOT OF CHARGE.

Blower motor doesn't start with capacitor installed!


you need a meter that will measure uf (micro farads) it should read within about 10% of the rating 12.5uf otherwise you could charge it with an insulation tester (megger) and short the terminals with an INSULATED screwdriver to see if it discharges.

I recently bought two of these subs and the box they were in has cracked at the bottom whats the proper size box and should I get a bigger vented port box because they seem not to be producing the amount...


Ensure the audio system is capable of delivering output power required by the subwoofer, obviously bigger vented box will result in greater air flow and produce better bass, but it should not be to big. you can try for boxes with more depth.
To enhance the bass you can try connecting a capacitor of 470 - 2200 micro farad across (parallel) the speakers. try out with smaller capacity capacitors first

How to install a zx-hypercap in to my car


Hello youngbossrio,

Like other car audio capacitors, the Volfenhag zx-hypercap has two terminals, a positive and a negative. The negative terminal is connected to the metallic frame of the vehicle (ground). The positive terminal is connected "in-line" with the amp 12V positive terminal.

The capacitor should be as close as possible to the amp. Within a couple of feet is acceptable.

The capacitor needs to be "charged" before connecting it directly to 12V positive. This is done with a 1000 ohm resistor and a voltmeter. The exact value of the resistor is not critical but it should be in the 500-1000 ohm range. Use at least a 1 watt resistor (your capacitor may have come with a resistor for charging).

Hope this helps.

35 Farad hybrid power capacitor not charging like instructed in manual, tryed charging the cap throgh the supplyed resistor "2watt/10ohm" between power cable and cap.But nothing happens seems like it dosnt...


Yes you certainly wire the 12v+ wire directly to the positive post of the stiffening Capacitor, however if you have a one of those test light probes to check for current on a car? They are really cheap but what i do is clamp the one end on to the battery and than touch the probe to the + teriminal of your capacitor, when the light goes out your cap is fully charged. Now if the light does not go all the way out or stays on you have a bad capacitor, and might i ask why the hell are you driving to need a 35 Farad Capacitor anyway?? Damn.. We do show and competition cars here and sometimes use them. I like the BatCap way better, it's a Battery and a Capacitor all in one. Way strong like bull..... good luck... Mark
