AUDIOBAHN ACAP4P 1 Farad Digital Capacitor Chrome

My plan now is to buy 2 X AUDIOBAHN 1 Farad Capacitor , and 1 X AUDIOBAHN active crossover in the near future. Once I got my stuff ready, I will then customize my car, possibly using fibre, carpet etc to rearrange my system, so that it will look nicer.

So if you ask why do we need a capacitor, the reason is simple, so that it can store extra power from the battery and ensure every beat of the woofer/sound is equally powerful. If only you have noticed, when you are listening to a songs that have continuos strong bass, the first beat is always that powerful, however, once it reaches the 3rd or 4th beat, the bass become softer and muffled. Thus, having a capacitor will store the power in advance before every beat.

If you look in the market, there are a lot of brands, which may state 2 farad, 3 farad or even more. However, most of the cheap capacitor do not even produce 20% of their stated power. Meaning that if they say 2 farad, the actual power they can store is about 0.2-0.4 farad only.

With AUDIOBAHN, this is not an issue. It can truly store close to 1 farad and thus produce sufficient power. In addition, this capaitor comes with full chrome body, just like its amplifier. In my next post, I will post the functions of active crossover, and if possible, take a snap of my amplifiers in the dark, which they illiminates blue.

This capacitor is available at RM300(including shipping), or USD 95(Worldwide), anyone interested, feel free to contact me. This is a very rare capacitor and hardly available in Malaysia. I have few units left only.

My AUDIOBAHN car audio system

Front Component Speaker - Audiobahn ABC6002V 6.5 Component

I have always wanted to snap a photo of my own car audio system, but my Kodak Camera was broken few months ago. Finally, I am sick of waiting any longer, just use my handphone to snap some shot to share with everyone. Feel free to write in any comments. 

My Built:
I also applied sound deadening mat onto my front doors to solidify my mid bass speaker. This allow the speaker to produce better and more powerful mid range music.

This is my Pioneer DEH-6950IB player. The reason why i choose this player is first because of the budget, secondly it is the 7 band graphic equalizer that attracts me. Higher-end Pionner player would have up to 13 band graphic equalizer. This allows fine tuning of your system according to various frequency. This player plays mp3, wma, CD. USB and ipod compatible but cable are sold separately.
I am using MTX 12" 5500 Subwoofer and not Audiobahn woofer as MTX has greater power handling than Audiobahn. Many of the online reviews also suggested that MTX subwoofer are better than Audiobahn. So i made up my mind to use MTX. However, the ultimate decision of choosing what brand of car audio products depends on your own EAR !! What is PERFECT to you may be rubbish built to others. So as long as you are comfortable and happy with your car audio system, don't let down by others comment.
