    Icon14 Installing 2 1-Farad Capacitors with MMATS Amp

    Okay, currently I have a 4-gauge power and ground connection with a 100-amp circuit breaker. Shortly, I will be receiving a MMATS D300HC amp for my HCCA 12's. I only have a 1-Farad cap. However, I will probably get 2 new 1-Farad caps with bussbars. Now, what should I do? Should I just go with the 4-gauge power to the cap and then to a fused distribution block and connect to the power on the amp? Or, should I use the 4-gauge power to a "T" distribution block and then use the 2 4-gauge power cables to the cap and then to a fused distribution block and finally to the amp?

    CDT Tweeter Image Enhancement Kit
