Alright so I have read the instructions on how to do this and looked it up online but have a few clarification questions on it. 1. I know you use a resistor on it, is a 1k one enough? 2. Are you supposed to do this on your car battery, as replace the fuse you would use on the power line with the resistor, or should I use another source? 3. This might be dumb, but the capacitor stores the charge until I hook it up for good correct? I am assuming so. On a side note does anyone know a good substitute for something like dynamat? I want some sort of padding to put under the carpet where the sub is going so it doesn't vibrate on the metal. Thanks all.
