Audio (and aftermarket electronics) This is your place for alarms, remote starters, to brag about your system, exaggerate your db levels, or simply ask questions for stock or aftermarket audio. No Flames! (except from roasted amps)

I read a professional article about capacitors that said they've never seen any study that proved that adding a capacitor helps your stereo in any measurable way, and that if a capacitor truly did make a difference, every stereo manufacturer would be selling them and bragging about the measurable differences a capacitor makes. Since nobody does that, you can pretty much conclude that a capacitor doesn't actually make any audible difference. Their advice was to take the $200 or so that you were going to invest in the capacitor and put it towards a high output alternator, and a better battery and cabling.

I think that was pretty good advice.
