& hunterius, I just checked that link, nice link... it really illustrates what I've been trying to show with just words....

yes , I like that site every time I need some simple and correct explanation of things from Audio world I am pointing to http://www.bcae1.com .... but not every time it helps ...as you can seeOriginally Posted by turbocad6
"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them."
I will be using a cap on my carputer and amps to 1 help with line noise, 2 my computer dosent like power spikes or drops to well so this is good protection and 3 to supply supplemental power when using all that power to start your car. Computers will run slow, restart and possibly run a risk of data corruption if they don't receive enough power. This also helps correct some people loud wining or poping on starting their vehicle (Starting a vehicle is a HUGE draw on power).
If you are having issues with not receiving enough power I would do the big 3 first, then get a good battery and a HO alternator. A capacitor will not correct your issues but is far far far from useless like stated above.
Opps, I got here from google and didn't look at the date of this post.
power at 12 volts out of 80f of capacitors. If your system is using say... 20 amps at 12 volts, you'll have 0.3 seconds until the cap is fully discharged. I'm actually amazed, I didn't expect it to last that long.
testing on this and see how long the caps will last at different voltages running through the lines (Removing my car PC off the line first, lol).
