Subs Draining Battery!!!
 

 
Ok I just got my subs installed yesterday and about 20 mins after i drove to the gas station beating it loud and i turned the car to pump my gas and it never came back on so the homie had to give me a jump and then it was good. But how can i stop this from happening in the future i dont wanna have to worry about my battery dying everytime i beat my music or was that just a 11 time thing since i barely got it installed...my friend told me i should just turn my beat down before i turn my car off is that true??

caps are useless

you may need an additional battery (maybe yellow top)

what kind of setup do you have?

or you may need a high output alternator

Don't waste your time & money on a cap. Do the big 3, upgrade battery, upgrade alt would be smart choices.

"Caps are useless"...<--wrong. Caps store a charge so the battery doesnt take huge dips of power every time your bass hits. Next you need a new alternator but its not gonna last unless you get a high output alternator to deal with the extra power you drawing... last upgrade your grounds for your amp to the chassis, and from your battery to the chassis to make sure you have a solid ground between the 2. You should be good then. just getting a new alternator wont solve anything cuz without a cap your alternator is gonna die again

Not entirely true. It could be a wire problem, but the battery could be almost dead and the amp finally k!lled it. I've seen it happen before.

thats the reason people put high output alternators in, they wont die without a cap, i'm sorry but all of what you said is complete bullsh*t, do some research before you come in here and think your able to dish out advice

your wrong caps ARE pointless, all they do is store power to deliver at a constant voltage. it's just one more thing the alt has to recharge. your better off with a battery upgrade and or big 3 and or alternator upgrade, a cap really should be the absolute last thing you buy, and you still should never buy one, they do nothing that a battery and alt and big 3 upgrade can't do better


but to answer the question
1st off check all the wiring
2nd replace the stock battery, it could be just about dead and the system is just k!lling it
3rd add extra battery depending on how much power your running and what kind of current your drawing with the amp
4th do the big 3 upgrade
5th upgrade your alternator

we do need to know what vehicle and what subs and what amp your running

he was obviously talking about a fitted cap so he can keep the sun out of his eyes when his car breaks down on the side of the road...come on that was pretty straight forward.

Yea and you were correct it was because I needed a clamp on the on the battery because the wires that runs to the battery werent connecting so I just needed a clamp because other one was broken!!!

Same sh*t happen to me. First of all you need a wire grounded so your amp cuts off when you shut off your car. Second I would not go with the battery. I would get a nice size cap. And there is noway your amp drain your car batterty that fast unless your battery was already sh*t. Now your sh*t would shutdown in the middle of you driving it because everything is searching for power and there is not enough power for everything. sh*t happen to me getting off the e-way in my old chevy.

You can get another alternator installed and that would help but you would still want that amp to shut off when you car shuts off. I would go with a cap.

n*gga fu*k you dawg how you gone tell me and my sh*t is hooked up now. He said his amp is draining his battery.

Same sh*t happen to me and all I did was ground my sh*t so when I cut of my car my amp shuts off too and I got two caps in my whip giving me that extra charge when needed. My car already has a decent altenator. My electrical system is good. My amp just never cut off and I sit my car days on end and it was draining my battery. Which sounds like is the same with his system.

you are a dumbass. to turn the amp on u need a turn on wire. yea the amp should shut off when you turn the car off. And like i should b4 CAPS ARE USELESS. Caps will not give you a extra charge.

Caps are useless but my sh*t works like a champ. If your car already has a good altenator like my car has. And all I need is something to give my amp power when needed jack a.ss why would I not use a capacitor? If my amp was draining to much power why would I dot use a cap? There is always an alternative but to sit up and boast like you know what your taking about saying they have no purpose.
