    Not too many people are fans of caps around here - especially not for daily use.

    I think that the consensus is that they are a waste of money because they do not work. Also, there is a school of thought that they are just another burden on your electrical system.

    I think that even those who advocate them would say that they are not a cure for a less than adequate electrical system.

    If you want some in depth reading, do a search for "Richard Clark" on here. You will find a thread that discussed caps at length.

    Was just wondering if it really makes sense to use anything larger than 6 gauge from B+ to alt when the brush wires inside the alternator are so tiny...

    Re: Official CarAudio.com Big 3 Thread

    I am getting ready to upgrade my alternator to a high output alt and also do the big 3.

    I have a few questions:

    1. My factory wiring from the battery negative has 2 wires, 1 to the frame and 1 to the engine block. Should I upgrade both?

    2. If I should upgrade both, is it still necessary to add a frame to engine block wire for the big 3?

    3. The high output alt manufacturer recommends adding a new wire from the alt case (negative) to the frame. Is this necessary since I am already doing the big 3?

    Thanks for any help.

    add that but more then likely you will need to get a good bat or two bats.

    Re: Official CarAudio.com Big 3 Thread

    Ok just gonna run down the (planned) setup of my car...someone feel free to point out an error or simply say no it wont be enough haha.

    4g power wire to 800RMS sub amp split to 150rmsx2 speaker amp
    4g for the big 3
    2farad cap
    ALT is rated 85-90amps
    8g speaker wire and grounds for cap and both amps

    will i truly be pulling what my amps are rated for or coming up way short?

    ill prob put it in anyways but im sure an Optima yellow top will help, correct?
