ABSOLUTE CAP300 1.0 Farad 20V Digital Capacitor with Digital Read-Out Built-in Distribution Block
A capacitor is a passive (a component that consumes but does not produce energy) two-terminal electrical component. In building a sound system for your car, you would want to use a capacitor for a couple of different reasons. The main reason a capacitor is always recommended is for power reserve. The capacitor stores energy and releases it very quickly to the amplifier(s). How does this help? It’s very simple: Music is dynamic, no matter what type you listen to. The dynamics in musical content can vary from soft voices, and very quickly transition to thundering bass notes. These moments are where the benefit of having a capacitor is heard. The amplifier requires a constant amount of steady power to function efficiently and power the speakers. A capacitor will keep the power going to the amplifier consistent and stabilized, which means a better sounding system. IMPORTANT: The remote output of the head unit is connected to the remote turn-on of the capacitor. The capacitor will not function if the remote wire is not connected to your head unit.
First, make sure that all the connections according to the diagrams in the instruction manual are correct. Pick up the cable coming from the POSITIVE (+) battery terminal. Place the supplied charging resistor between the end of this cable and the positive terminal of the capacitor. The capacitor will begin charging. Charging generally takes 5 to 60 seconds. During charging, the voltage shown in the 3 digit display will rise rapidly, then slow as it approaches the voltage of your vehicle’s battery. When fully charged, the display voltage will stop rising. If you have a voltmeter, you can first measure the voltage of your car battery. Then you will know with accuracy that the capacitor is fully charged. CAUTION!! During charging, the resistor will become hot. This is normal, but exercise caution during the charging process. After charging is complete, remove the resistor from the incoming positive cable, and IMMEDIATELY connect it to the positive terminal of the capacitor.

Absolute KIT4 Complete PRO Marine 4 Gauge 2000 Watts Amplifier Complete Installation Amp Kit Power Wiring with Blue Accent Color Scheme
Installing a car amplifier is already enough of a job without having to worry about where to find the right wire and installation accessories. What you might not know is that there are some gimmicks being played by some companies and you could end up getting ripped off!
Today, I would recommend KIT4 for all DIY and Installer. This is a wiring kit with an easy-to-install AGU fuse holder and some seriously good wiring. The positive and negative power wires are made with copper-coated aluminum (CCA) wiring to keep costs down but remain highly flexible and installer-friendly. The speaker wire kicks ass, and I was not expecting such a high-quality roll of speaker wire to be included. It feels and works great, and it is much better than the typical 18 AWG wire most kits would include.
