    Power caps

    whats the difference between the STINGER SPC5050 CAP NEW 50 FARAD DIGITAL PRO CAPACITOR and STINGER 35 FARAD HYBRID CAPACITOR. The 50 farad is cheaper than the 35 and i dont know why. The 35 retails at alot more as well. So any advice?

    One is a more expensive doorstop?

    Caps are worse than useless. If you specify what problem you're having, what equipment and electrical system upgrades you have done (or plan) we can point you in the right direction to fix it and capacitor will not be it.

    Capacitors suck, get an extra battery instead.

    I run MA's they're nice amps. watch they're classes though they make A/B and D classes. I have the HK3600sx they are current monsters, I'd def recommend not buying a Cap ur better off with a nice battery.

    Re: Power caps

    well i guess am not getting a power cap :P

    just wanted to see what u guys thought of the amp. I mean they seem pretty good and they used to be pretty expensive. Wheres the external fuses on it though? And does it actually do 4000rms? need it to power a kicker solo x 18''

    Re: Power caps

    LOL will it do 4k RMS hell no. Did they rate it decently? yeah. I'm sure its got like 270amp for fuse rating my 3600 has 240amp fuseing. 6x40amp. Therefore it'll prob do 3200watts RMS

    Re: Power caps

    fair enough. Seen some vids on youtube of them powering two 18 seems like they do the job pretty well. What would u give this amp out of 10 for overall performance 10 being the best.

    Re: Power caps

    for the price I'd give it a 7 ur not gonna find much better that produces that many Watts without shelling out a grand. They perfom well and have good heat handling and a ton of mosfets. They are just loaded on the inside with them, only downsides are they aren't built all that great. When I took my case off I was dissapointed in how lopsided all the capactors and basically everything on the board was....but that doesn't exactly affect performance and they do perform well.
