THe first time you need to charge it slow with a light bulb or a diode.
Hook it up making sure to get the polarity right and you are good to go.
I have directly shorted out a fully charged cap and it didnt blow. You're safe. The easiest way to blow a cap is by exceeding its maximum voltage. Since car audio caps are usually 16 or 18v or more you dont have to worry about that either.
