well you damn car might not start if ever system is running without car on....forget the capcitor it helps but not that much...i got a yellow top upgraded my alternator 140 amps(L99 stock is 105)
with a 10 farad capacitor i finally got it not to dim.now what i suggest and iam sure others will, put another red top in the back and you will be fine plus you might be givin a constint 14.5 volts which will make that rockford really :D BTW get those POS speakers out your car ;)

Just to let you know if the bass nob was 1/2 way up then amp was actually 1/2 way, because the bass knob overides the gain setting on the amp.....
