    Should I even bother with a capacitor?

    I know they are basically useless, but I have one a friend gave me a couple years ago. Should I bother wiring it in to my system because I have it, or just leave it in the garage?

    Meh, they honestly usually do more harm than good. How big is it?

    Wire it to a four channel using it on a monoblock usually restricts power. On a side note a bank of 6 supercaps can work very well on monoblocks

    I'd wire it in.
    It'll clean up any noise in your system.



    "When I listen to a stereo loudspeaker playback in my room and an auditory scene has formed in my mind, how would I know that what I hear is an accurate replica of an auditory scene that could be had at the recording venue? Or more generally, that this is an auditory scene that could have existed at all?"

    If you're a dead set sq guy than yes use it. The only thing it does that truly is beneficial is that it cleans up any noise in your system.
