Same here and i think no one does but Richard Clark himself.

part of the issue with dimming headlights is that power is getting pulled away from the headlight circuit to provide sufficient power to the higher draw item-- the amps. so it is unrelated, but related to high power amps...
So true i do think it's a 50/50 deal but the article was from a SPL forum and i agree them guys don't need a capacitor and capacitors will hurt the amplifier.
if you frequent any car audio forums, you know just how many discussions on this there are...
Somewhat true but i really see it both ways, no proof they work but on the other hand i don't see that they do not work either. I say if your lights dim install one and if it gets better keep it if not ditch the capacitor.
what i don't understand is if caps are good for a audio system, why is it so hard to find proof of that? wouldn't there have been someone somewhere that was able to show that a cap allows for the sub to dig lower, or get tweeters play smoother?
Please look for that post because i would really like to see that, i have yet to fully understand the good/bad about capacitors.
in the original post i had that had pics to the above link, most members agreed that the article proved caps were bad from a power perspective. but the article lacked any proof from a audio perspective ie: reguardless of power input, that caps help/hurt.
I'm on the other side saying prove it to me that they do bad. lol and i do trust Oldspark because i have read some post and i respect his knowledge and yours too.
so, with the info that i currently have-- that article (and if your search for older posts by member Oldspark, his electrical experience also supports this)-- caps are bad. but, as a person who is more concerned with sound quality, and driver staging, i am open to being proven wrong. all i need is proof... if you can prove that a cap will get my sub to dig 2hz deeper/play smoother, and make my other drivers play smoother, etc, you can count on me installing a cap...
To all that is reading this; evrything i'm saying is my own opinion and Oldspark and soundman98 have more knowledge then i. :sad:
