Both "+" connections on the cap are tied together within the cap, as are both "-" connections. Lanzar provides two sets to allow the cap to be more easily shared between the power/ground lines of two amplifiers. If you have only one amp, connecting to one or both of the +/- sets should not matter (although connecting to both +/- sets might reduce the resistance between the cap and the power wiring of your amp).

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.

Hey i had 2 car amps +for 4 speakers(140W maxi) and a sub 12inch


1 cap, either .5, 1 or 1.5 farad will be fine. they make 5 10 and 20 farad that cost way more than u need to spend for 400 watts RMS. i like the rockford fosgates, you can get a low cost Tsunami, just make sure you follow the charging instructions.

Amp turns off for a bit and back on when it hits hard


You do not have enough power coming from our car battery, your alt. may be going out. Look into a 5 farad power cap to store more power...

When i hook up power sparks mosfets get hot real hot like a dead short i replaced the mosfets all eight were fryed big time most had burned right side leg off lanzar 1000 watt car amp


It is clear that there are serious internal issues with this amp, and that diagnosis - parts - labor could be upwards of $200.00 while it only retails for $99.00

Saving it is not cost effective.

Good luck

Power Cap or Deep Cycle Battery?


your amplifier has the following specs:

Output Power at 12V:
1 x 200W @ 4 ohms (0.05% THD, 20Hz - 20kHz)
1 x 400W @ 2 ohms (0.5% THD, 1kHz)
Output Power at 14.4V:
1 x 300W @ 4 ohms (0.05% THD, 20Hz - 20kHz)
1 x 600W @ 2 ohms (0.5% THD, 1kHz)

a .5 farad cap should work fine for 12v applications, a .75 will work fine for 14.4v applications. If you plan on upgrading the stereo system in the future, you should probably just pick up a 1 farad now and save trouble later.

when mounting the cap, mount it as close to the sub as possible. i recommended a deep cycle battery in an earlier solution due to the power handling requirements for the amp and speaker combo, any time you are working on a competition or semi-competition setup, you will want to isolate your audio system as much as possible from your vehicle's main electronics. i normally use a deep cycle battery if it's going to be a comp/street combo as you can sit at the lake and jam all night without killing your main battery. for comp only use, i stick to optima batteries, they seem to work well and can dump loads of amperage pretty quick.

if you go the dual battery route, you will want to buy a battery isolator to make sure the two batteries are independent of each other.

hope this helps,
trin
