If I can do this by myself I would save alot of many any details? And should I do it?
Why would you be installing a capacitor in the first place :?::?:

If your amp isn't enough to power your SPEAKERS then get a stronger amp. A capacitor should only be used in situations where you have a high-powered subwoofer(s) that on their lowest 'thumps' require that extra surge of energy that your battery/alternator cannot provide.

Check out Crutchfield and do some research at car audio websites to learn about the difficulties of installing your own amp. Its not necessarily easy, but it isn't difficult either, the right word like said earlier is 'time consuming'.

I'm still deciding if I want to install my aftermarket audio system or have it 'professionally' done.
