Lets see its apples to oranges

Alternators create current and voltage
Battery is a high capacity storage device that has a slower discharge rate
Wire... Serves no other purpose but to "transport " both amperage and voltage ..

A cap is a Low capacity fast discharge device .

I fail to see the connection your trying to make

You claim your not "convinced" , there is a lot of hard mathematical information proving why they are useless . What hard proof do you have they are as u stated "efficient "
Current : 2 15s 149.5@56hz 2k rms Previous Trunk box 1 18 ,146.4@43hz 3500rms,Sony 12s 145.6@63hz
