The cap only takes that what the battery and the alternator delivers.
For that reason I asked about the voltage at the battery. If you have a high voltage at the battery(12.6V) and a low one at the capacitor(12V) your voltage drop is to high. You are missing 0.6V then.
Thats not much? Ha, put a headlight bulb on 12V and than on 12.6V - you will see the difference.

Its the same with an amp! You will hear the difference!
