No he works at a small shop called Audio Lab in Marysville, WA. He has been installing stereo equipment for over 10 years. Went to school in Arizona and is certified. The Powercap was tested today 2/29/2012 and works great. This is a great deal.

I also added O.B.O. so if someone does not value it at $250, which it is well worth, then we can negotiate something we can agree on.

Hit up the phoenix gold forums or ebay there are many collectors for the pg titanium products

I respectfully disagree, someone who is looking for a quality capacitor will be interested in this product. I am negotiable on the price for the right offer.

Even though most people now run batteries like Stinger,Kinetic & XS Power this isn't a little 1 farad cap it's a 15 farad but also a distribution block that can run four amps.He is just trying to recoup some of the money since he isn't using it anymore so doesn't hurt to list it.Im his brother and installed it 6 years ago.

doesnt matter what farad it is, its useless to everyone who knows what they're doing.

The problem with caps is its like putting a bandaid on a gunshot wound they don't store enough current but back when I originally bought this not many people made the kind of big batteries like they do now.

well it really dont matter who has an attitude or not,the point is that no cap on earth will hold up to the amps we have today,i mean i have a 500.1,that amp would turn that cap inside out with the current draw,and potentially damage the amp.never mind all the amps out now that are WAY stronger than the 500.1.all everyone is trying to say is no one here,on CA.COM,uses caps,so there for probably no one here will buy it,especially for that price.

Disregard the idiots who post in your thread OP. The phoenixphorum, craigslist, ebay, steavemeade.com, etc would be a good place to try to sell this cap. Lot of Titanium collectors out there, myself included.

A lot of people don't realize that a capacitor is the same/similar construction to an AGM battery......so to insult the cap is pretty hypocritical. ;)
The problem is, a lot of people who have had bad luck with caps are not using them for their intended purpose. A 15-25 farad cap is equivalent to a small AGM battery in most regards.

03-01-2012, 07:44 PM
Man you are a bunch if assholes! Op put it on ebay or craigslist. That would.probably be your best bet. No one really runs caps anymore so the odds of selling it here are low. You may find someone but it will be a while.

Also don't worry about catman he's just pissed he got suckered into buying hifonics subs.

Oh and don't buy hifonics subs!

Man you got a ton of **** for this, but it made for a very entertaining read. Regardless, you wouldn't be able to sell this here except for some ridiculous $20 price or something, it's just a waste of your time to bother. You could have very good luck on eBay, Craigslist, or PG forums for sure though.

I appreciate the respectful, honest feedback. That's all I ask for. I figured I would give this a try first, but will definitely try eBay and Craigslist.

Hell if you are going to let it go that cheap I am local I would keep it just for wall art! The Powercore is not a standard cap like those sand filled POS caps of today. Only folks that would want this are collectors and Phoenix Gold fans.

It was a very viable piece back in the day and probably would still work for a good little SQ system but the market on caps is dead with small power cells being cheaper now day's.

Just so everyone knows, i was reading this post WAY before dragon came in and "dropped the hammer", and all the people that got banned were being a-holes to the OP. He is just trying to sell something no need to blow up his spot guys.

$100 is a very good price as I've seen people buy Audison distribution blocks for $100, and this has a power cell included.

Good luck with the sale, its a collectors item.
