jb Capacitors Car Audio Capacitor

Many car audio enthusiasts ask about the importance of car audio capacitors to their overall car audio performance. If you have a high powered system or your amplifier doesn't get enough power, probably you need a capacitor. Making sure you have a capacitor installed will prevent any damages to your amp and other audio components.

What is the main role of a car audio capacitor?

Unlike automobile batteries, the main function of an audio capacitor is to store energy. This stored power will be used on demand (when your amp needs it). This will ensure that your audio system is being used to its maximum capability.

How do I know that I need an audio capacitor?

The first thing you will notice is dimming lights. The light will get weaker each time a heavy bass note sounds. If you installed the right capacitor, your audio system would have received the right amount of power needed.

What type of a car audio capacitor should I buy?

Depending on your system, but generally speaking:

- For mid-level systems (1000 watts maximum), you need a 1 Farad capacitor.
- For 1000 - 2000 watt systems, you need to get 1.1 to 1.9 Farad capacitor.
- For 2000 - 3000 watt systems, you need 2 to 2.9 Farad capacitor.
- For high power (over 5000 watt) systems, you need 5+ Farad capacitor
