Setting the clock an a Sony CDX-GT06 car stereo?

no, fordman, it is indeed 3 Farads (special for car audio). Okay, ryan, run a cable from the battery to the cap's (+) terminal, then a short length from that (+) to the (+) of EACH amp, so a total of three big red wires (or whatever you choose). each device NEEDS an independant ground, as short as possible. i know that they're all electrically in the same place, but for some reason it makes a huge difference. don't forget your fuses!

Which speaker is better?

Are you using some sort-of distrobution block for at least the power wires for the amps? If so, just run another power wire from the cap to the block and ground the cap separately. Otherwise just install the cap in between the amps.
Capacitors are made to comphensate for voltage drop from the wires so use as short of wires as possible.

While the article that Javin M provides held true at one time, there are a few thinngs that time has altered.

I know a cap can be beneficial as I'm running one and I measured a definite change in my electrical systems response curve to big bass hits with an oscilloscope, however, this won't be the case for ALL vehicles.
