    no, that's not enough, pyle has a 7 farad capacitor that will help tremendously, so you can proceed to knockin pictures OFF DA WALL...and I'm sure it's cheaper than that Planet Audio

    No...Don't waste your time or money on a cap. What does your electrical look like right now, and what car?

    1 farad caps are basically worthless, I don't run caps myself but if you insist on getting on then get at least a 5 farad or larger, or a Batcap.

    A second battery in the trunk is a better option since it can store so much more current than an ordinary capacitor can and are easy on the wallet.

    Re: Which Farad Capacitor should I get

    Don't listen to these guys, 1 farad is mooooooooore than enough. There is no way that wiring could help more than a big cylinder power thingy. It made my **** SLAM!!! I went with a Boss 1 farad cap, and my lights quit blinkin n ****. It's also better to get three 1-farad caps than one 3-farad cap, because there is less inductive resistance with the capacitance when you get more.

    wouldn't a square one work better? since his subs r square?

    I would get at least ten 1- Farad caps and string them every foot or so like Christmas lights around your dash....

    Do what you can afford The battery is the best way. But if all you can afford is a cap then get a cap you will be ok, get a decent sized one though. like a 5 like others said.

    Fa sho...It will send a proper square wave to the square subs, resulting in better output and greater sq (see what I did there?)

    i'd rather have a wider SQ and fuller output
