    Capacitors & Relays

    I have been reading through the forum and want to make sure I power my carputer just right. When should I be using capacitors and relays and what are there exact purpose? I have an Opus 90w on its way which is self regulated.

    Cheers!

    Um. You should not use ANY capacitors or relays with an opus. None. Connect it straight to the battery.
