it sounds like you did right.
Battery cable to + on cap
Good ground from frame to - on cap
+ on cap to + on amp
you can also run a ground from the cap to the amp.
If you use a fuse block and ground block, like I do. You can also wire the cap to the ground block and fuse block (see picture).
Charging with the resistor should only take a few seconds. The resitor is not really needed it's just used so that when you hook up the power wire to the cap it wont spark and put an ark mark on the + pole on the cap.
Save your resitor for discharging the cap when you store it, the cap holds charge like a battery.

I think what caused that is, that the cap was not fully charged.

That sounds to me that the cap got a better charge when you re-connected it the second time. Since it hits hard again, I would not worry about it but check your wiring again, just in case.

I have been doing my own installs for about ten years. I do not consider myself to be a pro but do know my stuff, others may have different oppinions and answers for you.
Here are some great sites with all the information you may ever need:
