Been a long time since i've been into car audio, but:

When you have a lot of current being drawn by your amps and/or other additional equipment (almost always amps) in your vehicle, the alternator cannot keep up so you run into problems like headlights dimming when the bass hits, among other things. The two remedies are to either add a "stiffening" cap, which keeps the line from sagging, or to get a bigger alternator. Many times both are done.

Correct me if i'm wrong, but the rule of thumb is 1000*farad = estimated watts it can handle RMS

is that a big cap? I have a 1.0 and a 2.2 in my car, and with a battery in the trunk I finally got my lights to stop dimming.

1.0 is FREAKING HUGE for a cap. most capacitors are measured in nano and micro farads.
