    Question 1.2 Farad Voodoo Cap.. NEED HELP!

    I recently bought a single 10" Power Acoustik sub with 1800 watt max. I am feeding 980 watts to it with a Power Acoustik amp. I also have 4 guage wire. Everytime my sub hits a hard note my lights and other electrical components in my car go dim. So I read up on some capacitors and I ended up buying a 1.2 Farad Voodoo Rack Mount Capacitor. I wired it up and yet my lights still go dim. I am not sure if it is even working.. I charged the cap and everything and I'm almost positive it is wirred correctly. I need to know what else there is I need to do or what I missed.
