You don't necessarily need a cap, what makes you think you do? What vehicle is this system going into?

Its going into a caddy. I just thought a cap would offer some better sound quality.

If you are running a properly set-up system in a Caddy, you will not need a cap unless you go crazy power-wise. The electrical system is already upgraded to handle all the toys in the car and should be fine with the equipment listed.

Having said that, and being a big Caddy fan......make sure you do a nice install....or else....

Hope it goes well, some pics when it's done would be appreciated....
