The TRUTH About Car Audio CAPACITORS! Testing a CHEAP 12v Capacitor VS IOXUS UltraCap Supercapacitor

It’s time to settle to debate once and for all with our awesome new Ultracap!!! Are all those cool looking capacitors from Amazon and Best Buy really solving the problems people are buying them for? Do they help with overall voltage drop? Will they increase RMS wattage? What about MAX watts? Well, let’s put the myth to the test by testing and comparing with an awesome new product: The Ioxus Ultracap Supercapacitor Module. That’s right, guys! We’ll even highlight a VERY DIFFICULT test to perform with Tony D’Amore’s DYNAMIC POWER demo at the end.

    How awesome is it that you got comments from Big-D, JP and the Godfather of car audio Steve Meade. EXO doing it right.

    I would like to see what the ultimate cap



  4. ketchup mustard on January 8, 2021 at 8:09 pm

    My sons car is a 2004 Toyota Corolla. I had a system in my suburban from 2003. I decided to give my suburban to my brother and he didn’t want the system. So now that my son is driving he asked if he can put it in his car. I never had an issue with the charging system in my suburban. I did up grade the alternator and put a better battery in it. And that was after driving it for years. I’m hoping you can say it would be a good idea to put a cap in his car to try and save his charging system from going bad? I’m not really wanting to put a lot of money into this project. It isn’t a large system it’s 2 10" kickers and a kicker amp. It was professionally put together and installed in 2003. I never had an issue. The amp also ran the 6×9’s in my suburban which I didn’t take those out. Thanks for the help

    Exo ur the freakin best god bless your soul!!



  6. Mike Karpinski on January 8, 2021 at 8:14 pm

    Very informative bro! Thanks



  7. kuba on January 8, 2021 at 8:14 pm

    Can’t wait to install two 8’s in my lil hatchback haha. Geat video!



  8. Farting Goldfish on January 8, 2021 at 8:14 pm

    NGL regular 1 farad caps suck. ive blown a few up.



  9. Dylan White on January 8, 2021 at 8:15 pm

    And those low farad caps are largely filler



  10. Sean Carey on January 8, 2021 at 8:16 pm

    it wont have the fancy features obvs, but you can build your own supercap bank for much cheaper if all you need is a good cap setup. $20-25 per cap, times 6 caps, you’ve got a 16.2v 500-566 farad bank. Add voltage regs for $5-10 bucks each, a fuse, some wire, and youve got a big ass bank of power storage for under $200. If I can find a way to reliably build a good enclosure Im considering making and reselling banks… Considering a comparable bank from a big name would be $400 on a great day but closer to 5-600…even selling for just $300 is decent easy profit.



  11. Kenneth Tarpley on January 8, 2021 at 8:16 pm

    Y’all still giving away the super cap



  12. Joey Holthusen on January 8, 2021 at 8:20 pm

    Enthusiastic



  13. Nicholas Blake on January 8, 2021 at 8:20 pm

    Awesome



  14. Nate Griffin on January 8, 2021 at 8:20 pm

    sooo without one will that drain car battery



  15. overbuilt automotive on January 8, 2021 at 8:20 pm

    good job on the video putting it together very professionally.. i like the choice in back ground music



  16. jerry lake on January 8, 2021 at 8:21 pm

    Hi,
    Can the super caps be run in series ?



  17. jacksterprime on January 8, 2021 at 8:21 pm

    The more Farads the longer it will take to discharge the cap 🙂



  18. Ghost790 on January 8, 2021 at 8:22 pm

    so would getting just a normal capacitor help it so my headlights won’t dim when there are kicks? because it doesn’t dim at all when there is constant bass but only the hard kicks at full volume.



  19. Bertram Kettles on January 8, 2021 at 8:23 pm

    Can I use a yellow top battery for a 2300watt 2000rms system and what kind



  20. Nu breed on January 8, 2021 at 8:24 pm

    Nice video need that fam….



  21. Philip Burzynski on January 8, 2021 at 8:24 pm

    And what about the top of the line "Flux Capacitor "? So much power and it works off of garbage.



  22. James Craig on January 8, 2021 at 8:24 pm

    Impressive



  23. Melvin Martinez on January 8, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    Where can one buy one of those UltraCAP/



  24. dublin4570 on January 8, 2021 at 8:28 pm

    Can you or has anyone paired the ultracap with a limitless cyber 12k?



  25. Savage Performance Tv on January 8, 2021 at 8:28 pm

    Great vid



  26. Smooothie 101 on January 8, 2021 at 8:29 pm

    What sub is he using?



  27. Joseph McKnight on January 8, 2021 at 8:30 pm

    Thank you EXO. I just installed one , a 5 farad . It helps . But headlights still dim like a mother.



  28. William Wilkinson on January 8, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    hey exo a super cap would be huge in my soon to be build. i love your channel bro keep up the awesome work



  29. Bobdodge on January 8, 2021 at 8:34 pm

    Im suprised the reg cap let the bendix work.. I was introduced to caps in 91/92 and old computers had 1/2 farads in them.. We scrounge them..for 10 bucks a pop at salvage yards while car audio shops sold the same Maxwell used for 35 a piece..times have changed
    Reg caps are still ok..
    I use caps on my led headlights on my old 94 to let them dim out



  30. Memes Chistosos on January 8, 2021 at 8:36 pm

    Bad ass video

    why does his car squeak so bad when it starts up?



  33. Michael Scott on January 8, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    Personally I use a cap, prevents light dimming and is cheaper than installing a new alternator. Also find that my system performs overall better with them than without them so why not



  34. thatnonchalantguy on January 8, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    so imma need one of those super caps haha

    excellent video



  35. RESET DIGITAL ENERGY SOLAR OFFGRID on January 8, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    TOP TOP



  36. Matthew Matney on January 8, 2021 at 8:49 pm

    Thank you! You video really was very educational. U really helped me make up my mind on the right thing to do. If I can ever afford one that will be exactly what I do.. tyvm



  37. Timbo Yuen on January 8, 2021 at 8:52 pm

    Liked your presentation. Thanks!



  38. Bryan Bundy on January 8, 2021 at 8:52 pm

    What about the system bumpin with no cap? Then see if the cap made even a fraction of a difference vs ‘stock’ instead of just cap vs super-cap



  39. milioguzman89 on January 8, 2021 at 8:52 pm

    What do you think about re audio xxx 12? And I need ideas for a building a box



  40. Steve Bowen on January 8, 2021 at 8:52 pm

    I may have a mullet but I think this guy has weirder hair than me 😂



  43. Austin Harding on January 8, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    wait what are these for again? & what’s voltage drop?& why was i recommended this video? Cant you just use a big ass solenoid?



  44. Tyronne Hamilton on January 8, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    I’ve had this cap for 4 months and happy with it so far I have it paired with two north star batteries but looking back I wish I knew more about lithium and it’s cost to power ratio first before I bought the NS’s but they’re still great batteries despite the fact, but the lithium would be cheaper $900 worth of NorthStar vs $700 Lithium.



  45. Tyler Patterson on January 8, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    You are a huge help giving me vital information as I’m currently upgrading my car audio



  46. Natural Creature on January 8, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    Hey EXO think 2 of these with 2 80AH duracell agms a good idea??



  47. Brett Yulich on January 8, 2021 at 9:00 pm
