Default 12V Cap

You usually install them near (as close as poss. to the amplifiers power terms.).

This is for your car stereo right?

Run the Neg of the cap to ground (best to use STAR method for grounding, if you haven't done so.). Pos. side of cap goes to the amp, in parallel with amps "Batt" line. What I normally do is run my power (from batt) to the cap, then run a line from the cap to the amp (if using only one amp). If using more than one amp, use a distrobution block.

Default No need to order

No need to order that cap. Just go to any local Car Audio shop...they will/should have plenty in stock.

Very common thing in the 12V realm.
