capacitor is used for power correction its kinda likea shock in electrical terms if there is a dip in the supply then it will discharge its supply. But then again it doesnt create magic powers you need the correct power supply tocharge it other wise it will be constantely discharging and create a strain on ur alt and burn it out so before you get one make sure yourcar can take the extra load.

it stores power to give out when your amp needs it the most. like during bass bursts.

A capacitor stores power, that is it! It does not cause any more strain than what your present system already does to your alt. In fact a capacitor can help protect your alt from surges created by hard drawing amplifiers but it is not a magical cure for an inaddequate charging system. Charlie, it isn't the cap causing the alt to constantly charge but the fact the system is over drawing to begin with. A cap does not draw power but it stores and nothing more. Polo..

so basically if your amp is runnin at full compasity its just stores energy and gives you a bit more power on hard deep bursts and hits??

They discharge "On Demand" NOT on there own, there can be no bad to come from a capacitor just from a stupid person thinking it can cure a weak charging system.

It will not give you more power but consistant power ONLY if you have the correct available power to begin with. Polo.. :-)

it stores energy from your alt to give to your amp. during times of increased power usage.

Not trying to argue with you but your statement is false and needs correction AGAIN, LOL :-O. A cap cannot nor will not burn an alt out, it is an overload that is presented to an already inadequate charging system that tends to burn the alt out. A bad battery can do this as well. Polo.. :-)

if your charging system is inadequate to begin with adding a cap is just another piece of electronics your alt needs to power. therefor putting a bigger strain on your charging system.

Your battery is more of a load than a cap can ever be, FACT.
