Default Capacitor to keep head unit alive?

Question about the android head unit I installed with xsvi-2004 in my C5.
If I clutch out at really low RPM the head unit blinks out I am guessing due to voltage sag.
Is there a way to put a capacitor in the circuit to compensate for this?

Thanks!

What other components do you have. Amplifier etc? Sounds like you may have an alternator or battery issue. Have you read up on installing a Big 3 upgrade to help with electrical system efficiency? I did one in my C6 before starting an audio upgrade.

I concur with the Post above and I replied to you in the other Thread with some troubleshooting suggestions. Click here to read it.

Perhaps you missed it, but I provided those details in the 2nd Post of the other Thread in which we were discussing the behavior of the AXXESS unit when the ignition switch transitioned from ON to Accessory and then from Accessory to OFF. Click here and scroll down to the last paragraph.
