3 farad can hold more juice than 1 farad ... you usually don't need to go over 1 unless your using some major juice grin

usually, a 1 farad capacitor can handle up to 1000 watts.. and so the 3.0 (also 3) farad should be able to handle 3000 watts..
i have a 3.5 farad capacitor which should be able to handle 3500 watts...which is more than enough.
the larger the number, the more battery power it can hold and give to the amps.
you can check out crutchfield.com and read the info they have on them also.
