Thanks for the help. i've researched the capacitors a little. theyre more of a "really should" than a "need."

I could give him a page long reason, most of us audio guru's don't buy subs/amps/etc from crutchfield. I used to compete in USACi, even have my own termlab! Besides the /show/ cars you don't see any of those guys using capacitors. Stock alternator, optima battery, wiring upgrade, will handle most of what people do.

here is a video from years ago when I was into all that:

Your starter draws like 3x the current than a 1,000w rms amp.
