Question about Lanzar 4 Gauge Digital Installation Kit w/1.2 FARAD Capacitor Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Capacitor First my subs started working off and on for no reason. I have a 4 farat capacitor and it normally would say 14 volts or so. Now when I turn my car on it says 8.4 or so. The subs do no sound and after a couple minutes the display on the cap just turns off. I can hear that the amp is on like a whirring noise. Please let me know whats up.

    Fixed! The ground had melted fiberglass all over it. I cleaned it and bolted it down properly. Thanks a ton!

Sounds like a bad connection to me, check all your cables,

Most likely to be an earth, so check all your earth cables including the battery earth, its always a good idea to upgrade your battery earth anyway, It will be better that way anyway

Your best bet is to buy a cap. A capacitor is an external battery booster like device. It boost power to amp. The thicker the wire the better. Power and ground. Shorter thicker ground wire the better. Make sure it is not on a painted surface. Scrape down to metal surface!!!!

I have polk amp that is powering 2 12' subs but itis flashing up with low amp/short light with a little buzz noise?


you must check your wiring from head unit back to subs even take subs out of box to make sure no wires are lose 99.9 of the time a wire has come lose which can be bad if your bridging sups as it changes ohms with 1 or 2 subs hope that helps oh and check volts from you batt and check volts at fuse spots and after fuse to make sure your geting at least 12 to 14 volts cheers i just had a ***** of a prob my subs worked but **** bass found out head unit sub out craped out

Your probably not pusing enough wattage to the amp. Look into buying a capacitor for your set up. and you may need to run a thicker guage wire to your amp.

LOW VOLTS ON '04 350Z


14 volts is about right.  Have you had any starting problems?  Are your headlights dim?  Does the gauge move when you turn on the headlights and the blower motor?  I also have a 2004 350z.

Low ohms light flashes and bass distorts at high volume


Sounds like you need to invest in a capacitor. Those are used when subs receive a bass spike. You just a need a 1 Farat Capacitor (1,000 watts) ran between the head unit and the amplfiier to fix your issue. Also, try reducing the volume gain to half gain and low pass frequency to half gain; this will increase your clarity and make your amp less hot. This may fix it without a capacitor. Also find out what amprage your alternator is. Your alternator may not be designed to run the amplifier. Most alternators are 200 amps now if they are gold plated.

Hope this helps

What power cap do i need for my car audio


I would go with a 4 FARAT capacitor then you know your amp won't be dimming your lights or clipping your amplifier signal.

I would actually buy the kinetic capacitor from www.onlinecarstereo.com they rated at being 100 1 farat capacitors. Great buy since it's on sale for $200 with added shipping.. Otherwise the 4 farat is needed.

Power surge blowing fuses on amp when car is turned on.


the voltage regulator in the alternator or the capacitor is malfunctioning. get a multimeter on the battery when u start the car (before the capacitor) if it reads a large surge (something greater than 14 or 15 volts) then u may need a new amp, if not, then test it on the back end of capacitor to the chassie negative, see if u detect spike there.
