A powercap is a powercap - electricity is electricity!

Doesnt matter if its SPL-X or Rocky Fos they do the same job, not a huge lot.

However, the same does not apply to their speakers or amplifiers.

thats rubbish, they actually make the drain on your electrical system worse in most cases and are a total waste of time and money.

You cant be more wrong. The quality of parts used have a great factor on resistance. Shit materials = more resistance = shit power cap.

Everyone reckons that power cpas are really shit!

But since ive been using one i can honestly say its really helped my system and helped with dimming and big bass drops!

Its down to prsonal opinion i spose but i like them and you'll notice alot of people using them so they cant be all that bad!

they r fear, if u find the need for one u need a bigger alternator simple as, they just move the problem down the line not solve it.

or u cud use a BATCAP, they work differently and actually do keep the voltage stable, not cheap tho at 200 +.

The only thing i would touch tho.

Im going on what I have seen and have been proved at MF2K bespoke Installations.
I have seen them test a rocky foz cap alongside a Maplin/Shark one and get the exact same resistance etc.

Are you going to be able to tell the difference?
