Why use a power capacitor?
This power capacity is an energy storage device. it is designed to supplement you car's charging system, when your audio amplifier places a high current demand upon it. This occurs, for example, when the music you are playing contains a loud, transient, deep bass signal.
The overall bass response of your system will be enhanced by using this device. Since automotive batteries are not designed to deliver the current required by modern car audio systems, a capacitor such as this one, which is capable of discharging extremely rapidly on demand, is a logical addition to your audio system.
in addition, this capacitor can filter out the AC voltage induced in the amplifier's power supply. Unchecked, this voltage can cause audible noise in the sound system. It is recommended to use a capacitor with a minimum of one microfarad (1F) for each 500 watts of amplifier power.(you can never have too much capacitance for any audio system)
The BOSS capacitors feature a digital voltage display.
your new power capacitor system features the following:
-3-digit, super bright blue LED voltage meter
-Voltage measurement accurate to +/- 0.1VDC
-Blue illuminated window
-Warning tones for the following detected conditions:
>Reverse polarity connection
>Over-voltage limit (above 17VDC)
>Low battery voltage (below 10VDC)
Before installing and using your new BOSS capacitor, please become familiar with all the inromation contained in this manual.
Please keep this manual in a safe palce for future reference.
- .Do not open or attempt to repair this unit yourself. Dangerous high voltages are present which may result in electric shock. Refer any repairs to a qualified service technician.
.To avoid risk of electronic shock or damage to the unit, do not permit any of this equipment to become damp or wet from water or drinks. If this does occur, immediately unplug the power wires and send the porduct to your local dealer or service center as soon as possible.
.If there is smoke or any peculiar odor present during use or if there is damage to any of the component enclosures, immediately unplug the power cord and send products to your local dealer or service center as soon as possible.
Prior to installing and connecting the capacitor, please study the drawing below and become familiar with the physical features of the capasitor.
Securely mount the capacitor using the hardware provided. Be careful when choosing a mounting location to avoid moving parts, and possible exposure to moisture.
Important note about charging the capacitor
This capacitor must be charged BEFORE connecting the POWER and GROUND cable to the capacitor.
Failure to change the capacitor will result in a large spark generated form the rapid inflow of current which can be very dangerous.
Electrical connections for CAP20 or CAP35
Make all wiring connections as shown in the diagram, but do not attach the incoming positive cable to the capacitor positive terminal.
Connect the positive terminal only after following the instaructions for charging the capacitor on page 8.
Electrical connections for CAP10
make all wiring connections as shown in the diagram, but do not attach the incoming positive cable to the capacitor positive terminal.
connect the positive terminal only after following the instructions for charging the capacitor on page 8
Charging the capacitor
As noted earlier, make all connections according to the diagrams on the preceding pages EXCEPT for the POSITIVE (+) connection to the capacitor. To charge the capacitor, follow these steps:
1)Pick up the cable coming from the POSITIVE (+) battery terminal.
2)Place the supplid charging resistor between the end of this cable and the positive terminal of the capacitor. The capacitor will begin charging. Charging generally takes 5-60 seconds. During charging, the voltage shown inthe 3-digit display will rise rapidly, then slow as it approaches the voltage of your vehicle's bettery. when fully charged, the displayed voltage will stop rising.
if you have a voltmeter, you can first measure the voltage of your car battery. then you will know with accuracy that the capacitor is fully charged.
3)After charging is complete, remove the resistor from the incoming positive cable, and IMMEDIATELY cannect it to the positive terminal of the capacitor.
The installtion and charging process are now complete, and you can begin using your audio system and enjoying thebenefits of your new system enhancement.
