Question about Tsunami Lite Wave Capacitor 2.0-farad with Blue LCD Meter

1 Answer

I have a tsunami light wave 5 fared capacitor running 2 kicker amplifiers running around 2000 watts total and its all been working great for about 2 or 3 years until just lately. it works fine when the volume is extremely low on the amps but as soon as the volume is turned up enough where it draws one or two amps of power the amplifiers cut out and i take a voltage reading on the capacitor and its only giving me 8.5 volts at the output instead of the normal 12. the battery is fully charged, if i remove the capicitor and hook everything straight up to the battery everything works fine. what is wrong with it?

SOURCE: 3 kicker CVR12 Car Subwoofer to a amp tsunami 1100

The only way you can do this is if the amp has a min of three channels. you will need to bridge each speaker seperately. With that much power, attempting to bridge all three subs together will cause the amp to over heat and possibly blow. email me the specs of the amp and subs and i will give you the best advise quigley1313@yahoo.com

SOURCE: Why is my Kicker 08zx650.4 amp turning off in my 98 Deville??

ive been hearing alot of this going on yes you had youre system proffesionaly installed but youre amp is pushing at all its got it must be pushing at 1ohms capacity loud but what you dont realize is that.. do ur home work first some amps say they can handle the power but if you read carefully it would read not stable look up amp on the net before buyin review them first ...but evrything youve got is correct its youre amp it wont burn out but you wont get continous power to ur spkrs ..i recomend installing one amp on each spkr same brand if you prefer in keeping it with a crossover if you dont have one that way they wont over heat and cutt off and you will use less power and get more bass...

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.

What is best amp to run 2 12 inch cvr's


12In Kicker CVRs
are Dual Voice Coil, and You can run each voice coil around 200 Watts RMS

So each sub will have a 400 Watt RMS and 800 Watts peak.

Now since you have 2, Your total will be 800 Watts RMS and 1600 Watts Peak.

I would get really any amp that sits at around 800-1000 Watts RMS.

These are kicker but they are low end so i wouldnt push them to the extreme.

1000-1200 Watts RMS Max and but keep the Gain down on the amp. They will hit no doubt but i wouldnt push these subs or you will be disapointed in the long run.

I would get a Fosgate or MTX amp.

You can get any amp really but find something right around 1000 Watts RMS and it will push those well.

You can go mono block or a 2 channel, just depends on how you want to wire them.

Be careful though. If your running them bridged right now with your mono block, do not run them parallel bridged on a 1000w RMS Amp, you will blow them so fast lol

(RMS = Root Mean Square. Or in other words is the continuous wattage being sent from the amplifier to the subwoffers)

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.

Kicker cvr and ameican legacy 2000 watt monoblock amp. I just need to know if this would hit hard? n if der is anything i need so i wunt damage my 2006 malibu at the same time


The amp, i am not so familiar with, so do your homework...

You want to pay attention to sound quality specs such as signal to noise ratio (the higher the better, like around 100 ) and THD (total harmonic distortion, the lower the better, like between .1% and .001%) If your amp is putting out 2000 watts at a high distortion level such as 1%, you wont be too happy with the quality and you may blow your sub before ever approaching the full 2000 watts.

As fara as your car goes, a heavy duty capacitor would well placed between the battery and the amp, and upgrading the alternator may be considered. If not, you are looking at substantially shortening the life of both your battery and present alternator.
