hey everyone, i have 2 amps and a eq, wen im driving and wen i hit teh brakes or my car shifts into higher gears or wen i turn my blinkers on my audio cuts out, it will cut out like crazy wen im braking at high speeds (getting off the freeway). anyways in another forum the guy told me to go to wal mart at buy a 1 farad capacitator for about 75 dollars, i found it and i was wondering if i bought the capacitator will it fix the problem and is the one from wal mart a good deal or am i just wasting my money?

No you need a larger alternator.

A cap won't "fix " anything. It will only help an otherwise nicely setup system. It sounds like you may have a grounding issue or possible shorting wires somewhere. I would start doing some basic troubleshooting with the wireing first. you can't just throw more money and parts at a system when it already has problems.You need to fix the problems first.
