    Please don't use the capacitor.

    And why do you have your mids crossed off at 1200 hz, then your tweets start at 5k. What is going to play between 1201-4999 hz?

    Opss I put the wrong setup NOW it's fix.

    Also why you don't recomend putting the capacitor?

    I have several options for this setup, one is with dedicated midranges and 1 Sub. All depends on how they sound. I will try the 3 way first if doesn't work I might have to go with the 4-way

    like this one

    yes, they need juice.. so why not also add a capacitor for your car to have to charge as well as the amps? Perfectly good idea.

    because caps are a bandaid. add an extra battery. if he his going to compete in sq compitetions the cars are judged with the car off so after the inital bass hit the cap will drain and then pull power from the battery to recharge itself, power that could be going to the amps. so cap bad battery good.

    Wow I didn't realize that, I will add another battery and keep the capacitor, I will use the capacitor for the daily use (night use) to reduce dimming in my lights, but for competitions I can create some sorth of relay or breaker or quick disconnet to only use the batteries and have the capacitor disconnected.

    I bought this amps new @ $59.99 each shipped from crutchfield because they are discontinued, quality and sound is much better than my old MTX amp and Pionner amps, so why not $240 in 4 amps , the subs bought them for $30 I really don't know the quality of them or how they sound but I have 2 to play with this is a starting setup, I know my self as soon I get really hook up, I will buy better amps , maybe some JL audio don't know yet.

    By the way they are 75wRMS x2 each oro 200wRMS x 1 bridged. They are selling them for $55 on http://www.midwestelectronics.com/bl...fier-p-81.html

    Here is a better pic, the internals are way better than the MTX, US acoustics and Pionner amps I have

    Those amps have actually gotten pretty good reviews. I almost went with the Cerwin Vega EXL series amps for a budget sq setup.

    I would never consider that brand for a setup for mine but I'm suprised they are so cheap! Not a bad price for a starting point.
