No you're right, AFAIK capacitors are mainly used for smoothing out voltage, but I'm no electronic engineer ;).

I had a fiddle with ant amp etc today, the coax was slightly loose but not enough to...

I think what he really wants to test is the fan controller module on the fan itself.

Thanks :)

Btw I believe the freq range is 10-100Hz, but I don't know what the voltage output is of the ECU PWM wire, any ideas?

Alternately could I just hookup an LED to the PWM wire from the...
