ABOUT PYLE
Pyle made a name for themselves in the 1960s building high-end subwoofers. Their original Pyle Driver speaker was a mainstay in households for several decades. Since then they have expanded their lineup to include a huge range of audio and electronic entertainment products from speakers to DVD players. Based in Brooklyn, NY Pyle has always been proud of its excellent customer service. They also take pride in the fact that they are able to offer high-quality products at very reasonable prices for those who are on a tight budget. Born out of good old American ingenuity, Pyle driver has grown to become a strong presence in the electronic entertainment world.
FAQs
Q: What does Farad mean when it comes to power capacitors? How do I know which is best for me?
A: A Farad is a means of rating the power of a capacitor. Similar to how wattage is used as the power rating system for amplifiers, farads are used for capacitors. Because a capacitors job is to take some of the load off of the battery when you are running high-powered amplifiers, you will need to match the capacitor to the power output of the amplifier. A good general rule of thumb is that for every 500 - 1000 watts of amplifier you are running you will need roughly 1 farad for the capacitor. So if you are running 3000 watts of amplification you will need a 3+ farad capacitor.

Q: How does the voltage affect a power capacitor? How do I know which voltage is best for me?
A: Capacitors generally have two different voltage ratings: an operating voltage which indicates the amount of voltage a capacitor can take for long term use, and a surge voltage rating that tells the maximum amount of short term voltage the capacitor can withstand before failing. Car audio capacitors are generally available in 16 volt and 20 volt versions with some 24 volt versions becoming popular. In theory the more voltage the capacitor is rated for the higher the amount of energy it can store. However when hooked up to a car audio system the capacitor will only operate to the maximum voltage of the rest of the circuit. For most cars the alternator/battery circuit doesn't exceed more than +/- 14 volts so the capacitor will only operate at this voltage. Unless you have a custom setup that is able to charge a 24 volt capacitor to its maximum voltage there is no real gain to going bigger than a 16 volt capacitor.
