i have a 10 farad rockford cap. not only can i hear a difference if i take it out i lose number on a spl meter and everyone that listened to the with and with out cap could hear a big difference in the quality of the sound.

i tested my voltage drop with out my cap and i was losing around 1v more at full tilt then with the cap installed.

they should have chosen a better brand for their testing and am i the only one that noticed that they where using more then 1 type of meter to watch the voltage?
maybe between the need of a better brand cap and a matching pair of meters to watch voltage with they could do better testing with more solid results and thats all im saying for this entire thread.

i use a cap and it help my voltage and sq, hate me if you want...
