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.

What capacitor value is good for car battery?

A car battery does not need a capacitor as it's regulating capacity (when in good condition) is well above any capacitor you can fit into your car.

What is the difference between a DC capacitor and battery?

Both a capacitor and battery "store charge". However, in a battery there is a chemical reaction that continues to generate charge. You apply a charge across the "plates" of a capacitor and it will decay over time from leakage or through a discharge resistance to ground in the circuit. You need really large capacitors to store meaningful amounts of charge, to take the place of a battery for example.

Why don't use bypass capacitor in common collector?

You would use a supply bypass capacitor in a common collector amplifier... It's necessary, to give the positive supply rail a direct AC connection to ground. Without it, I don't think the amplifier would work properly. However, if you're using a power supply and not a battery, then chances are that it HAS a big capacitor inside it, eliminating the need for any external capacitor.

In general, no. You need to use the correct capacitor as designed for the circuit.

How do you tell if capacitor is working?

If were talking about a battery cap for a car stereo, it would be less light dimming and better hits from your woofers. Otherwise you need a voltage meter or something, I have no clue other than my first sentence.
