I have a 760 watt amp powering 2 10" subs and it works fine. my brother has a 1000 watt amp powering 2 12" subs and he got a capacitor. So it really depends on what amp your looking at. if the 760w you wont need one, if the 1000w i would be safe and buy a capacitor. for the 1000w amp you would only need a 1 or 2 farad capacitor.

You need atleast 700 watts true rpm.

do amps get pushed? Normally a 1200 watt amp would need driving with less than 12 watts of audio.

It takes 1 farad for every 1000 watts so u need 2 farads.

YES

You need at least 5 volts to power it? What's the real question?

Yes, but in order to do so you need to adjust the power going into each sub from the amp. It should be located on the back of the amp, but location varies by brand.

That depends on circuit voltage. 1 watt is equal to 1 volt times 1 amp.

Yes because the cap will store the power and give it that extra boost when need be but depending on the type of vehicle you have you might need a bigger battery

the subs rms tells you what u need.. so a 900 watt rms sub would be best with an amp from 800-1000 watts
