    Icon14 1 Batcap 400 Series vs. 2 1-Farad Capacitors

    Which would be better to use with my current all 4-gauge power and ground cables and MMATS D300HC amp - one batcap 400 series or 2 1-farad capacitors with bussbars?

    how ?


    look at the specs on this bad fella

    http://www.batcap.net/Model400.html


    A question:

    if I rewound my amp with my, currently, 600 watt setup, to say 180 ampers...

    would I still "need" one of these capacitor things ?

    If I were you, for now I'd do neither. I don't think you'll have a problem at all. If you do, then look into what you need to do to fix it.
