Cool I found it.

Also, obviously these are the raw thing. Is there a place we can buy the links to connect the caps?

I'll need to do more reading about a balancing circuit/ resistor

you can buy the straps on ebay. they have copper or aluminium. Im sure toolmaker or anyone else could make them too. They arent that hard to make.

so looked into several companies sselling these and the price are not good at all. plus they upped the price on caps the last couple of weeks. the cheapeest they would do for me is 54$ per cap if i buy 500. so idk if anyone is down for that.

i thought price would be in the 40s. this sucks. jsut have to wait now for prices to come down.

If you have a large enough cap bank they will drain a battery to zero volts but would be over a period of several weeks/months.

Looks like it helped! did you hook it up before or after the battery in reverse line from the amplifiers? First being inbetween the amp and the battery.

Looks like 1 or two of those might need to be in my future.

edited ato show. will do testing with placement of caps in system but it really shoudnt matter much. the voltage drop of wire would be only difference

Have you done testing at all in regards to placement before/after batteries?

The downside of using batteries and caps is the potential difference. Caps stay at the charging voltage even when not being charged. Batteries drop back down to resting voltage. So what you get running both is the alt charging the caps which charge the batts and essentially render them useless because batteries love being charged and will take quite a bit of power. Now that being said using caps without batteries means you need more charging to keep the voltage in a safe range, but this is in turn a good thing because let's be honest running 10k on a couple batteries and an upgraded alt is not proper electrical. Caps are better than batteries given you have the ability to properly run the power you have. They do fine for daily as long as you can charge them correctly and have enough reserve for your power.

So, is running caps with batteries pointless? And would placement in the circuit of the caps make a difference here?

Say I had a buss bar, and I had batteries, amps, caps, and front to rear positive and negative wiring to pump into the buss bar. Posts on the batteries, so I can't change their location. Would I want wire runs>>caps>>batt 1>>amps>>batt 2+? There's so many possibilities, seems like I need to pick some up and do some testing. If only I had spare cash :/

there is advantages to using them together and seperate. it all depends oin the goals of the system and also alternator power
