Audio System is Now Stable...Finally!
This review is from: NEW BOSS CAP2B BLACK 2.0 FARAD DIGITAL POWER CAPACITOR CAP
Pros: My Kenwood 9105D Mono amp (1800W) was shutting off randomly for several months. I tested EVERY aspect of my system, bought a new battery, and was still having the problem. I was blowing 80A fuses, and after installing this capacitor, everything was stable.
Cons: Installing it was a bit confusing, and nerve wrecking. This capacitor is capable of delivering a lethal shock if the two contacts are bridged by your body. When I charged the capacitor up to capacity, and removed the resistor from my + cable, the voltage dropped on the cap's display quickly. Somewhere around 1V per second, if I remember correctly. I'm not sure if this is normal, since a cap's job is to maintain a huge potential difference. Maybe this is where the difference in brand comes in, because I would imagine the materials used inside (dielectric and plates) would have this draining effect.
Other Thoughts: The bolts are 5/16", if I remember correctly. It's been many months since I installed this, so don't quote me!
