man.. I wish I was part of that conversation. Caps are of great use. But only when used correctly.. just like they say. Caps will not help with great voltage drops. just won't happen. But.. the topic he skips over, or atcually avoids, is the fact that caps wired in parallel ARE noise filters. and an Amplifier, when it hits big bass hits.... IS A NOISE PRODUCER. batteries are no good at reducing noise in a system. they cannot provide current at the same instantaneous rate, due to various chemical properties, the most significant one being Entropy. THe batter creates power by chemical reactions, and chemical reactions occur as fast as charged molecules can come in contact with the metal plates. A capicator has all of its electrons on the electrical plates, ready to move at significant speed (near the speed of light). This is MUCH quicker than a battery can even dream of... which comes back into the fact that systems sound better with continous voltage... we are talking continuous voltage across miliseconds, not seconds. 100 hz is one pulse every milisecond, 100 Current draws. 50 hz is a current draw every 2 miliseconds. Batteries cannot keep up to quick pulse rates like this, as the chemical reactions just don't start and stop that quickly..... Capicators are needed for a clean signal, bar none. This also explains the dimming lights, but that is quite a bit more complex..... it Isn't that the peak voltage is really dropping, its that the average voltage is dropping... and the lights dim, very similar to how Daytime Running Lights are dimmer than the Hi-beams they normally use. they only get peak voltage a certian percentage of the time. grr.. so much complex stuff. I just would like to discuss this with them... ah well
