    Can you post a link to the equipment? Pictures? I don't know what it is or what it does.

    Glad you found your way here. The other thread is cleaned up. :)

    Those are basically capacitor(s). Just install in parallel with your battery.

    Ah yes, one of these - guess my Auto Sound vernacular ain't what it used to be!

    It installs electrically across the battery. I would put it at the amplifier end of the circuit right in front of the amp. When you install it, there should be some instructions that tell you how to charge it up or better put, Pre-Charge it before making the final connection via installing the fuse. Typically that would be accomplished using a resistor or light bulb.

    Be sure and fuse it also, 60 to 100 amps should be good. If you put it across the circuit at the amp, then that should already be fused per the amplifiers specifications - just use that fuse, no need to change fuse amperage. In other words fuse the circuit per wire size and amplifier specifiacitons.

    Be sure to precharge it or you could have spectacular fireworks.

    When I saw this: "battery ground voltage stabilizer regulator." I wasn't sure exactly what he meant. My mind was racing......

    Does it have instructions with it? It's a simple installation as K2e2vin alluded to. Just remember to never connect it to the battery circuit without pre-charging it.

    Here's a schematic on how to install it. I would locate it near the amplifier(s). It can also be located under the hood or anywhere you want really. Just try to keep wire lengths to a minimum and use the same size wire as you feed the amp(s) with.

    ALWAYS REMEMBER TO CHARGE IT UP BEFORE MAKING THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTION TO THE CARS ELECTRICAL SYSTEM.
